Submission + - Climate Change Will Obliterate the Global Economy and Doom the Poor (vice.com)

pigrabbitbear writes: "The World Bank has released a new report examining the very-likelihood that the world will be 4C warmer by century’s end. Jim Yong Kim, the World Bank’s president, says he hopes the results “shock the world into action.”

According to the report, “we’re on track for a 4C warmer world marked by extreme heat-waves, declining global food stocks, loss of ecosystems and biodiversity, and life-threatening sea level rise.” Which will result in an unstable world where the poor, the least able to adapt, will suffer, and food and labor shortages will throw the global economy into a tailspin."
