    Today’s New Energy Or Tomorrow’s Climate Crisis?

    Children set for more climate disasters than their grandparents, research shows; Climate crisis brings stark intergenerational injustice but rapid emission cuts can limit damage

    Damian Carrington, September 26, 2021 (UK Guardian)

    “…Today’s babies will also grow up to experience twice as many droughts and wildfires and three times more river floods and crop failures than someone who is 60 years old today…[but] rapidly cutting global emissions to keep global heating to 1.5C would almost halve the heatwaves today’s children will experience…[and] keeping under 2C would reduce the number by a quarter…

    …[These findings from new research may have underestimated climate impacts on today’s young people because] multiple extremes within a year had to be grouped together and the greater intensity of events was not accounted for…53 million children born in Europe and central Asia between 2016 and 2020 will experience about four times more extreme events in their lifetimes under current emissions pledges, but the 172 million children of the same age in sub-Saharan Africa face 5.7 times more extreme events…

    The analysis found that only those aged under 40 years today will live to see the consequences of the choices made on emissions cuts. Those who are older will have died before the impacts of those choices become apparent…” click here for more
