  • News Alert: Weather disasters to impact 2 out of 3 Europeans by 2100, study says

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Fri Aug 4 16:02:10 2017
    By the end of the century, two out of three people living in Europe will be affected[1] by heat waves, coastal floods and other weather-related disasters, largely due to global warming and climate change, according to a study published Friday in the journal Lancet Planetary Health.

    That's 350 million people in 31 countries subjected to an increased risk of death and health hazards.

    Overall, weather-related disasters are expected to cause 152,000 deaths a year in Europe between 2071 and 2100, jumping from 3,000 weather disaster-related deaths a year between 1981 and 2010.
