Within a few decades rising world temperatures will create food shortages in Sub-Saharan Africa and leave some parts of Asia flooded while other areas will not have enough drinking water. World Bank President Jim Yong Kim says the world must mitigate climate change as he reveals key findings of Turn Down the Heat: Climate Extremes, Regional Impacts, and Case for Resilience, a scientific report on the expected rise of global temperatures by 2 degrees by 2040.

One thought on “A Warmer World Will Trap Millions In Poverty

  1. Greg,

    I haven’t seen the research that indicates a rise of 2C by the 2030s-2040s. Can you point me in the right direction for that work?

    Many thanks in advance.
