CNN, April 22nd, 2019: Climate change poor countries poorer, widening global inequality, researchers say
Climate change is having a serious impact on economic growth across the world — and it’s worse for poor countries that already had a lot of catching up to do, according to a new study.
Two Stanford University researchers modeled the country-by-country effects of global warming over a 50-year period, and published their findings in a paper out Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Countries with the hottest climates suffered the most economic damage, the study showed.
