The cost of climate change

For Global Spotlight Report, Climate Scorecard asked Country Managers to  provide information on how climate change is impacting the most vulnerable population  groups in the leading greenhouse gas emitting countries that cover.    Extreme weather events, such as soaring temperatures, droughts, floods, and forest fires  are the cause of much climate related suffering among the vulnerable. From a health  perspective those most affected include the very young, the disabled, and the elderly.   Economically, climate change’s impact is being felt in a big way by farmers across the  world when their crops fail to grow. This in turn affects the access that people have to  food resources, especially in rural areas, as Country Manager for China reports. The  extremely poor will suffer through lack of access to food and water, as described in a  report from Country Manager in India.
