08 Mar Day 5: That Darn Climate Change
Check this out for a really interesting side event at CSW. “Scientists have presented evidences that global warming threatens the planet in a new and unexpected way – by triggering earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches and volcanic eruptions.” They went on to say that the earthquake in Chilie and the in Haiti caused by climate change. “Climate change caused by rising outputs of carbon dioxide from vehicles, factories and power stations, will not only affect the atmosphere and the sea but will alter the geology of the Earth.” They also said that climate change effects women more than men. Go figure. This was a hard event to sit through.
