Europe will be hit badly by Climate Change
Europe will be hit badly by Climate Change — — -Brussels (Brussels Morning) The latest IPCC report on climate change warns that by 2100, river flooding will affect half a million people a year. At the present time, fewer than 170,000 people face such a threat. And by that time, the damage could rise sixfold — from EUR7.8 billion a year today. In 2002, floods on Central Europe’s major rivers claimed the lives of dozens of Europeans, ruined homes, and cost the countries affected billions of euros.
