Massive fraud from UNICEF: "Climate change kills as many as tsunami every year"
A new report finds climate change responsible for the same number of deaths as an Indian Ocean tsunami every single year. It is already responsible for 300,000 deaths a year and by 2030 this number could climb to as many as half a million.
Climate change is threatening lives and livelihoods through increased frequency and intensity of hazardous weather (such as hurricanes, cyclones and flooding), water shortages, changes in agricultural patterns, and reduced sanitation.

Many of the major causes of child mortality in low and middle-income countries, including malaria, diarrhoea and undernutrition, are highly sensitive to climate conditions, making children among the most vulnerable to climate change.

One thing noticed is "a polar bear lying on the beach after swimming to shore in Barrow last fall - something scientists say is becoming more common because of receding sea ice."
