These are directly not only the world, but directly and indirectly effecting humans as well. Directly by things such as tornados and hurricanes. Indirectly by things like pollution, heat stress, reducing access to safe food and water. These indirect consequences don 't happen immediately, they are more of long term effects of climate change. These are all going to keep getting worse unless action is action.
Climate change not only has impacts on the well being of people, but it also has negative economic impacts. Only a few years ago, extreme weather and other disasters cost the world
$200 billion in 2012. It is estimated that By 2030, the researchers estimate, the cost of
