"As many as five billion people will face hunger and a lack of clean
water by 2050 as the warming climate disrupts pollination, freshwater,
and coastal habitats, according to new research published last week in
Science. People living in South Asia and Africa will bear the worst of it.
Climate activists have been telling us for a while now that global
warming isn’t just about the polar bears, so it’s hardly breaking news
that humans are going to suffer because nature is suffering. But what is
new about this model is the degree of geographic specificity. It
pinpoints the places where projected environmental losses overlap with
human populations who depend on those resources and maps them with a
nifty interactive viewer."
