Climate change: 2,50,000 more deaths per year by 2030, says WHO
The World Health Organisation (WHO), in its latest assessment, has said that by 2030, approximately 2,50,000 more people will die per year due to climate change.

It says most of these deaths will be caused from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress.As the earth becomes warmer, the global climate is changing, affecting human health in a number of ways, for instance by altering the geographic range and seasonality of certain infectious diseases, disturbing food-producing ecosystems, and increasing the frequency of extreme weather events. WHO also says that heaviest burden of diseases due to climate change will fall on children, women, elderly and the poor, further widening health inequalities between and within populations.
