According to the most recent findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global warming due to climate change has been clearly linked to human activities, such as greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion (carbon dioxide), livestock production (methane), and extensive use of wood stoves in rural areas (black carbon). One of the most serious consequences of global warming is its impact on human health and welfare. This includes increases in vector borne diseases (malaria, dengue fever), heat waves, smog production, loss of surface water resources, and escalating incidences of severe storm events and changing rainfall patterns, causing major flooding in some regions, while creating drought-like conditions in other parts of the world. We must now shift our sole attention from mitigating climate change through initiatives taken in developed countries to dealing with adapting to its long term trends, especially in many developing countries, where climate change impacts are expected to be most severe within the next twenty to thirty years.
