Poor Countries and Climate Change by Hussein Alnomani

It seems poor countries are most effected by climate change. And people living in poor countries  are the least educated and least able to adapt to climate change.

The warning systems and educating people to what those warning systems are would make a huge difference in dealing with disasters such as intense hurricanes, flooding or extreme drought. Climate change must be a global concern. Spreading the awareness of climate change is up to all of us, but the United Nations should play a bigger role in helping poor countries prepare and respond better to climate disasters due to global warming and climate change.
