Four out of five major natural disasters are caused by climate change: Report
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has revealed in a report that four out of five major natural disasters in the world are caused by climate change.
The report reveals that since the 1990s, the number of natural disasters caused by climate change has increased by 35 percent every decade.
Floods, hurricanes and extreme heat waves have killed 410,000 people since 2010.
The Red Cross has called on the world to tackle climate change in the same way that Corona is being tackled because the issue is just as serious.
It may be recalled that the United Nations had revealed in a report that Asia is the continent most affected by natural disasters.
Experts say the number of natural disasters has risen significantly over the past two decades, with Asia being the hardest hit.
Experts warn that even more disasters are possible on Earth if climate change continues.
The report reveals that more than 7,000 natural disasters have been recorded in Asia in the last 20 years.
As a result of these natural disasters, more than 10 million people died, 42 million people were severely affected and the economic losses amounted to 2.97 trillion dollars.
