Everything You Need To Know About How And Why Climate Change Has Been The World’s Biggest Risk, According To A WEF Report

Experts believe that climate change is to be considered responsible for being the cause of an increase in the likelihood and severity of extreme weather phenomenon, as well as the undeniable heat waves that are also rampant across the globe.
Furthermore, as per Business Standard, of the five most likely risks faced by the world, it was found that two are related to environmental concerns, one societal, another geopolitical, and one technological. Experts say that for three consecutive years now, extreme weather event has always been considered since the impacts of climate change are becoming clearer with each passing day as we continue to pour carbon pollution into our atmosphere at an unprecedented pace.
