Global warming not taken seriously


WASHINGTON, D.C.: Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said on Thursday (Friday in Manila). “We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius,” Kim said at the start of the International Monetary Fund-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. “Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications . . . 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two degrees Celsius,” he said.
