United Nations
"We continue to see climate change gather force.

I want to express my solidarity with all those suffering the devastating impacts of the unprecedented events we have seen in recent weeks from Texas to Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Sierra Leone. The United Nations stands ready to support relief efforts in any way possible.

The number of natural disasters has nearly quadrupled since 1970. The United States, followed by China and India, have experienced the most disasters since 1995.

It is true that scientists caution us about linking any single weather event with climate change.
But they are equally clear that such extreme weather is precisely what their models predict will be the new normal of a warming world".
