Climate Change Kills

Candle Light, Death, Climate Change

Climate Change Will Cause Millions of Deaths 

Climate change will inevitably worsen, which can kill ecosystems and many animals. Yes, that includes humans. People will die from climate change-related causes; in fact, many already have, and many more will. A WHO article says that "climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea and heat stress" between 2030 and 2050. 

Climate change deaths will, and have already, disproportionately impacted third-world and developing countries. In other words, those who least cause the problem will have it the worst. That's like screaming into a quiet person's ear in which the people who make the least noise are deafened the most. Please leave a better simile in the comments because my similes are bad. 

Could you die from climate change? I can't give you a yes or no answer because I'm not looking into a crystal ball. What I can say is that the place that you live plays a huge role. Many areas will face huge droughts and extreme wildfires while others could have nasty floods and hurricanes

In the coming years, we will see climate change take its toll. Masses of climate refugees will leave their homes because of severe droughts and weather associated with climate change, forests and coral reefs will disappear, many species will go extinct, and millions of people will lose their lives. Something must be done to lower carbon emissions, the cause of climate change. That could mean switching to clean energy sources such as nuclear and swapping some meats for plant-based alternatives. Significant changes must be made. Fast.
