According to the report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) , about 40% of the world's population is currently affected by climate change, and about 3.3-3.6 billion people are living in an environment that is extremely vulnerable to the impact of climate change. As global climate change becomes more severe, the risks to humans and the ecosystems they depend on will also increase. The extreme weather brought about by rapid global warming and climate change has also caused species extinction, insect-borne diseases, ecosystem collapse, deadly heat waves, water shortages and crop yield reductions.
In fact, NASA's latest research also stated that climate change will affect global corn and wheat production as soon as 2030; this conclusion also echoes the "Climate Change and Land Report" released by the United Nations IPCC. If no effective countermeasures banner design are taken, by 2050, climate change will reduce the global food production capacity by 5-30%. image3 Photo Credit: TNL Brand Studio The study pointed out that once the global warming reaches 2 degrees Celsius, 18% of terrestrial species will be at risk of extinction; and when the temperature rises to 4 degrees Celsius, 50% of the species will be threatened, and this impact will be in the next few hundred years. Almost impossible to reverse.
When families suffer from hunger, children are the biggest victims image2 Photo Credit: TNL Brand Studio Currently, 811 million of the world's approximately 7.7 billion people are malnourished and 161 million are food insecure. In particular, since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, the number of people suffering from famine crisis has increased by 60%, including 43 countries that have experienced famine, and 45 million children are suffering from severe malnutrition; among them, 45% of children under the age of 5 have died as a result. Climate change causes droughts to cause crop failures, or floods that wash away crops and houses, resulting in fewer resources and conflicts between tribes and nations over resources. The sadder fact is that children are the group with the least impact on the climate, but the biggest victims of climate change.
