Scientists have known for a long time that tornadoes seek out trailer parks, but climate change is getting even more sophisticated in its directed attacks on the poor.
“For millions of people on the frontlines of climate change, the time since Copenhagen has been the year from sheer hell as floods, droughts, fires, storms and other extreme weather events have wiped out crops and destroyed the livelihoods of some of the poorest people in the world. We know that the destructive impacts of climate change will mean more misery and pain for the world’s poor, and increasing instability and insecurity around the world unless action is taken. As you prepare for a new round of talks in Cancún next week, it is abundantly clear that you must do better. And fast.”
All over the world, climate change has been avoiding the guilty countries who generate the CO2, and has been instead targeting innocent poor people. That is so sinister. If only ministers will pass a meaningless token agreement in Cancun, we can appease the climate change gods.
