It's Just Not Fair

It's bad enough that climate change brings more extreme "natural" disasters. But what's incredibly unfair is that the people who suffer aren't those who did the damage. This is a map of the world distorted to reflect carbon emissions.

Conversely, this map is distorted to reflect the number of people killed by "natural" disasters.

Basically, it's the rich nations who have the means to create global damage, and it's the poor nations that can't afford to protect themselves.
