The impact of man-made climate change has been disproportionately felt by developing countries, according to a new paper by researchers at Stanford University in the US. Noah Diffenbaugh and Marshall Burke from Stanford’s Woods Institute for the Environment modelled the economic consequences of anthropogenic global warming, and found that hotter countries and those in the global south were more likely to have suffered substantial damage over the past 50 years, while colder, wealthier countries were more likely to have experienced an economic boost from rising temperatures.
