Heat will hurt poorest nations soonest

Very high temperatures are set to affect some of the world’s least developed countries before touching the richer nations that are more responsible for climate change.  Some of the world’s poorest people, who have contributed least to climate change, are likely to feel its effects sooner than most of their neighbours…Research by an international team of scientists has found that many of the planet’s poorest countries are likely to experience daily heat extremes caused by climate change before wealthier nations do.
