NEWS AND VIEWS FROM AROUND THE WEB ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Get ready for water shortages and temperature changes.
A new index is looking at how certain changes could affect places around the world. Climate change in Canada is most likely to have the worst impact on four cities by 2050. If nothing is done to stop or reduce climate change, there are some major impacts that could be felt in the future.
The 2050 Climate Change City Index put out by Nestpick aims to figure out how global warming could take hold in major metropolises around the world.
Cities ranked in the index are destinations that could face the biggest shifts by the time the middle of the century comes around. These include temperature changes, water shortages and rising water levels.
“Millennials, Gen Z-ers and those even younger will increasingly need to keep climate change in mind when searching for the city they would like to eventually settle in,” said Omer Kucukdere, Nestpick’s CEO, in a statement.
