85% of world population already impacted by climate change

The effects of climate change could already impact 85% of the world's population, according to an analysis of tens of thousands of studies, published on Monday.

A team of researchers analyzed nearly 100,000 studies published between 1951 and 2018, regarding global warming, with the help of computer systems.

"We have devastating evidence that climate change affects all continents, all systems," study author Max Callaghan told AFP.

Callaghan and researchers from the Berlin-based Mercator Institute mapped the globe and mapped the impacts of climate change.

As a result, 80% of the Earth, which is home to 85% of the world's population, is affected by studies that foresee changes in temperature and rainfall linked to global warming.

But the impacts are less documented in poor countries. The trends in rainfall and temperatures in Africa could be linked to climate change, "but we do not have many studies documenting the consequences of these trends," explains Max Callaghan, who sees in this a "blind spot in our understanding of the impacts".

Research on climate change has grown exponentially in recent years, with nearly 1,500 studies published between 1951 and 1990, against 75,000 to 85,000 over the past five years.

Brian is part of the Russian scientists team convinced that we are just now entering a new Ice Age. Even Vlad The Putin agrees and says that it is a great deal for Russian men who will no longer have to fork over untold thousands of Roubles to buy mink coats for their women. The life is worth living again. Bolshoye spaciba, Brian!!!

He never has any. He's just another redneck peckerwood who felt safe coming out from under his rock when the chickenshit draft dodger was elected a one term twice impeached prez.

Global cooling in the 70’s??? What’s empirical evidence? Oh that’s right, lies and disinformation is all you people have. Why is your “global stupidity” concentrated in a single US political party headed by an orange loser?

Now, not only do we need to wear masks and live in a bubble, we also have to live under a shade tree. What's next? What's next? What's next? Oh wait, until another 50 years go by and there is global cooling again like in the 70's. How about GLOBAL STUPIDITY. I never hear anyone addressing that. I certainly see a lot of it on here and all around the Americas though.

Brian and his fellows in the party of stupid must deny reality in favor of their simplistic ideology. It’s all that the feeble minded can comprehend.

ULTIMATE PROOF: Covid 19 was planned to usher in the New World Order and they are in the process of doing the same with climate, remember decades ago Al Gore flying around on private jets getting rich living in his HUGE homes?

There is no climate emergency, say 500 experts in letter to the United Nations https://www.aei.org/carpe-diem/there-is-no-climate-emergency-say-500-experts-in-letter-to-the-united-nations/ | This is a group of independent scientists and engineers not paid whores who create results by their paid sponsors, big difference when people volunteer you get independent findings vs PAID scientists who MUST create the results they are paying to create. The UN criminals behind the coronavirus fraud and crimes against humanity have already openly stated they will once again falsely imprison the world. If society does not unify against these evil bastards behind these crimes they'll be nothing left. They already announced people were so willfully stupidly obiedient with the covid fraud, which the controllers were shocked, they have stated we must rush to "lockdown" people under climate lockdowns. THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN STATED BY THESE MONSTERS! This is a global genocide. Rules for they but not for thou! While people could not travel THEY travelled, while people were told they could not gather in functions Obama had thousands in a party with no masks, while you were told you could not go out to restaurants THEY were dinning in restaurants with their friends celebrating birthdays, when you were told you could not travel THEY were flying in private jets, while you are being told you must live in 150 square feet YES the new size THEY want you to live in THEY live and have many houses 100 to 1000 times greater in carbon footprint then you, when THEY deny you travel as being done in Australia now THEY travel in private jets, when THEY tell you you cannot go more than 5KM and track and trace you with applications such as green pass to insure you are enslaved and limited THEY travel in limousines and caravan's of carbon emitting vehicle's, you are to drive an electric car but THEY forget to tell you how destructive it is to make the battery and how much carbon is released in the process. Climate change is real, not caused by humans but THEY are lying and using it to get rid of people and enslave the rest. This is real. The lockdowns under covid fraud were false imprisonment and unless people get their heads out of their asses we are heading back into climate lockdowns, which are both false imprisonment orchestrated through lies, deceit and fraud.

When referencing global warming, willful blindness is akin to shooting oneself in the head. So many choose to be ignorant, stupidly listening to those who, despite all the extremely obvious indicators, cling to their devotion to fossil fuels and the devastation they continue to create. Being beholden to dollars will not be a salvation when the food chain collapses or when sea levels forever change the world's coastlines. Some men are destined to be willingly ignorant and blind to truth and facts. Sad state.
