WebChat: The Inequities of Climate Change
  Friday, June 13, 2003. 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (1800 - 1900 GMT)

With global average temperatures climbing to 14.52 degrees Celsius, 2002 was the second hottest year since record keeping began in the late 1800s. The nine warmest years on record have occurred since 1990, and scientists expect that the temperature record set in 1998 will be broken with a new high in 2003.
Scientists predict that higher global temperatures will translate into a greater number of extreme weather events. The number of big weather catastrophes worldwide has quadrupled since the 1960s, a trend that many attribute to rising global temperatures.

Poor nations and communities are disproportionately vulnerable to the reverberations of climate change. While wealthy nations, mostly through fossil fuel burning, contribute disproportionately to carbon emission levels, developing nations suffer far higher relative economic and human losses from weather related disasters associated with climate change. Rising global temperatures have made citizens of poor nations more vulnerable to infectious diseases like malaria, while climate change-induced sea level rise threatens the very existence of some small island states.

Join Vital Signs 2003 authors Janet Sawin, Molly O’Meara Sheehan, and David Taylor to discuss the responsibilities and burdens of climate change.
