The World Bank warned Sunday that if climate change isn’t stopped or slowed down, the global economy will suffer greatly.

“A 4 degree Celsius world is so different from the current one that it comes with high uncertainty and new risks that threaten our ability to anticipate and plan for future adaptation needs,” he writes.

“We need to understand how to continue to meet the needs of the poor today while curbing emissions so we can meet the needs of the poor in the future,” she says. “There are things every country can do now that doesn’t mean they’re growing their economies in a dirty way now and saying they’ll clean it up later.”
