Global warming has made poor countries even poorer

Researchers estimate that from 1961 to 2010, global warming led to a decrease in per capita GDP.

Population in the poorest countries fell by 17–30%. At the same time, the gap between the GDP of rich and poor countries increased by 25%.

“Historical data clearly shows thatcrops are more productive when people are healthier, and we work more productively when the temperature is not too high and not too low. This means that a slight warming can help cold countries, but it will be very inappropriate for regions where it is already hot. ”

Earlier it was reported that melting of permafrost in the Arctic will lead to economic damage up to 2300 in the amount of $ 24.8 trillion to $ 66.9 trillion.
