Global Warming, the silent killer?

May 29, 2009

It’s the harsh truth folks.  According to a study by the Geneva-based Global Humanitarian Forum, climate change is killing 315,000 people a year through hunger, sickness, and extreme weather events.  And the number is expected to keep on growing.

The real kicker with global warming is the large, industrialized nations are contributing  99% of the carbon emissions that are heating up the earth while the least responsible developing countries bear more than 9/10th of the human and economic burden of climate change. 

The video news release:

Kofi Annan is not happy about this.
