Extreme weather could kill 150,000 per year

Recommended Posts

Scientists have warned that extreme weather events could prove devastating by the end of the century.

In what has been described as a "much needed wake-up call" to governments across the world, the new findings, which come courtesy of scientists at the European Commission, indicate that extreme weather is likely to become an increasingly major cause of death in the coming decades.

Runaway climate change will bring, among other things, intense heatwaves, flooding, drought and wildfires as well as a rise in the number of people suffering from starvation and infectious diseases.

"This is a stark warning showing why we need greater action on climate change fast," said Friends of the Earth campaigner Donna Hume. "People across the globe are already dying due to extreme weather events and without concerted action this will get worse, including right here in Europe."

Coming out with the fear porn again! However given recent trends maybe something is to come!

They got those evil beady eyes.

I say we wipe them off the planet before they do it to us.

I've mentioned this before. I have a feeling deep inside that makes me want to live protected under ground. Away from it all. Had this since I was a child. An odd feeling to say the least. I always wondered if it was a future cataclysm reaching back through time. The awareness picks it up and warns you in small ways...

I will join your subterranean city Shep. Just make sure the entrance is in a mountain somewhere so i don't have to worry about drowning to death during a flood! Also cave-ins. Living underground is scary X_X
