By The Globe and Mail staff, July 17, 2018 3:29:34 As the weather warms, many areas of the world are bracing for extreme weather events.
But many are also preparing for an even worse threat: climate change.
Here are some things you need to know about the phenomenon and what it means for your home.1.
COVID-19 will affect many of us for a while.
The most severe weather events can last for months or even years, and the number of cases can be even greater.
As more extreme weather hits the US, it will also be more costly for our economy.
The costs of the pandemic are expected to reach billions.2.
Climate change will make life worse.
Climate impacts on weather, agriculture, and coastal cities are already having an effect.
For example, climate change will have a negative effect on crop yields and on food prices.3.
It will mean fewer people and fewer jobs.
Many industries, including agriculture, have already lost hundreds of thousands of jobs as a result of climate change and its effects.
The US will also lose jobs due to the drought and the rising costs of energy, which will impact many communities.4.
The world is getting more vulnerable to climate change impacts.
A study published in June by the International Monetary Fund found that the cost of natural disasters in the United States is expected to be $10 trillion per year by the end of the century.
The IMF added that if climate change is left unchecked, that cost could reach $30 trillion by the middle of the next century.5.
It is getting worse for the poor.
The global population is projected to rise by nearly 5 billion people by the 2050s.
This will increase the demand for energy, increase poverty and make food prices more unaffordable.
In the US and Europe, the gap between rich and poor is expected have grown to nearly $30,000 by 2050.6.
It means less money for our children.
According to the United Nations, a child born today is likely to live to be 70.
By 2050, this gap is projected at over $1 trillion.7.
The average American household will spend over $30 billion on electricity and gas in the next 10 years.
If current trends continue, the average American home will have an electric bill that is $4,500 per year.8.
We may not be able to protect ourselves from the impacts of climate changes.
According the US National Science Foundation, climate-related disasters will cost the US economy over $9 trillion by 2050, and $4 trillion by 2100.
The U.S. has already seen some of the most severe impacts from climate change, with flooding, drought, extreme storms and sea-level rise already having hit our states and cities.
As a result, some states have been cutting funding for climate-safe projects.9.
It won’t help our economy as long as we live in a country with a carbon tax.
Carbon taxes in many countries, including the US ones, are already on the table for this year and in the future.
But these taxes are not a permanent solution to climate-induced damage.
They only have the effect of raising revenue, not reducing emissions.10.
We are getting closer to the tipping point.
According a new report from the Climate Reality Project, by the year 2100, the planet’s temperature will have risen more than 3 degrees Celsius.
At that point, the global climate will be much hotter than it is today, which means that the oceans will rise more, which could lead to more extreme and destructive weather events and sea level rise.
If the world continues on its current path, we could be headed for the same catastrophic effects that are already occurring.
