The march of global warming, caused in part by the release of industrial gases into the atmosphere, could be partly staunched by the adoption of cleaner, renewable energy sources, a charity group stresses in a report.

A charity group warns that over 100 million people in sub-Saharan Africa could die by the end of the century if global warming continues its march unabated.


AP:

Millions of people around the world face death and devastation due to floods, famine, drought and violence caused by global warming, according to a report by a charity group.

A report to be released Monday by Christian Aid said 162 million people in sub-Saharan Africa alone could die of disease directly attributable to global warming by the end of the century.

It urged the British government to lead the world’s richer countries in taking urgent action to curb global warming.

Poorer regions, the charity added, should be encouraged to use renewable energy sources.
