Global Warming Will Affect Poor Countries More Than Rich Ones

  

http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=21448&Cr=climate&Cr1 If the economy keeps plummetting, we won’t be classified as rich too much longer. For now, everybody is scraping up the $4 bucks for gas & etching out their existence. People who reside in poorer countries aren’t worried about gas. They’re worried about food & other basic needs. But they also need to be concerned about global warming. Follow the link for the full story.

Basically, the United Nations Secretary-General warns that poor countries will suffer more because of global warming. We all have not come to an agreement, here in America ,on whether global warming is real or not. Apparently, the majority of the world has come to the conclusion that it is an impending threat.  Global warming is caused by human activity which has affected the environment.  Poor countries that may not have contributed to global warming at all will suffer greater consequences. Since America’s still a rich country, we’ll suffer less from global warming. It all depends on an economic turnaround.

In Comparison To Other Countries, We’re Still Rich!

The U.S. dollar bill is declining in value in the world . Food & gas seem unobtainable to most. I had to quit my job when I got relocated. That would have added an extra 30 miles a day to my commute! In these times, that’s an absolute no-no. We are facing another great depression in America. Even so, we are still one of the wealthiest countries in the world. This video shows how the food crisis affects different parts of the world. By compiling news bits from various countries, they show you the different reactions to it. The news report from the United States had no sense of urgency or panic to it. In other countries, they were dealing with riots, starvation, & death. Here we’re trying to compromise on a trillion dollar bailout to save our ass! In comparison to other countries, we’re not doing so bad.
