IGSD: Climate Change Could Kill More Than 100 Million People by 2030: The report concluded, “[T]he worst impacts...

The report, commissioned by 20 governments in the Climate Vulnerable Forum, calculates the human and economic impact of climate change in 184 countries between 2010 and 2030. It found that nearly 700,000 climate-related deaths already occur today, with almost 80% occurring among children in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. The carbon economy is estimated to claim an additional more than 4.5 million lives, primarily from the health impacts of indoor and outdoor air pollution. The combined number of deaths could rise to nearly 6 million annually by 2030 if action is not taken. More than 98 percent of those deaths will occur in developing countries.
