Skip to comments.UN: Climate change means more weather disasters every year

In the wake of heat waves, global warming, forest fires, storms, droughts and a rising number of hurricanes, the U.N. weather agency warned Tuesday that the number of people who need international humanitarian help could rise 50% by 2030 compared to the 108 million who needed it worldwide in 2018.
In a new report released with partners, the World Meteorological Agency says more disasters attributed to weather are taking place each year. It said over 11,000 disasters have been attributed to weather, climate and phenomena like tsunamis that are related to water over the last 50 years - causing 2 million deaths and racking up $3.6 trillion worth of economic costs.
The 2020 State of Climate Services report, compiled by 16 international agencies and financing institutions, calls on governments to put more money into early-warning systems that can improve countries ability to prepare for, respond to and mitigate the impact of such natural disasters.
While COVID-19 generated a large international health and economic crisis from which it will take years to recover, it is crucial to remember that climate change will continue to pose an on-going and increasing threat to human lives, ecosystems, economies and societies for centuries to come, said WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.
Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity to move forward along a more sustainable path towards resilience and adaptation in the light of anthropogenic climate change, he said.

Kinda like the sun coming up each day? A lot of people are stoopid enough to eat this crap up. The powers that be know this.
But my local Prius dealer doesnt open until 10?!
And if not that, then less. Either way, the end is near unless we get more socialists in power.
How much more do I need to pay in taxes for these noble saviors to rescue us? I know that they wouldn’t just take our money pretending to solve the problem while claiming that we must continue paying to stave off the apocalypse.
If they hanged these arsonists here in Mexifornia,the air would be cleaner. California dreamin.
Politicians are going to make us believe they can control the sun?
Don’t worry. You can order Teslas online around the clock. :)
I think it means less disasters. Prove me wrong.
I thought tsunamis were caused by earthquakes. Are they now trying to say THAT is global warming too?
Huh? Next they'll try to tell us the earth revolves around the sun....
The larger question is, “Why are we still in the UN?” The UN needs to move to Paris or Bejing and get along without the USA. It’s nothing but a blackhole for all the money that it takes in.
The UN is doing a great job...we haven't had AN ICE AGE since they were formed in 1945...😀
The UN means many more disasters of every kind. It’s easier to abolish the UN than Climate Change, climate change having been around for eons.
