This is a cartogram that speaks volumes.
The lead author of the report states:
The big message of this report is that climate change is a health issue affecting billions of people, not just an environmental issue about polar bears and deforestation.
But the deeper message, as the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein reported in his blog the other day, is that while America leads the world in per capita co2 emissions, the burden of climate change will fall on the global south. Not a pretty scenario.
This might be the best graphic I’ve seen that encapsulates the drivers behind climate change and the predicted mortality that could come.
