Climate change 'kills 300,000 every year'

Three hundred thousand people are already dying every year as a result of global warming, according to the most comprehensive report ever on the human impact of climate change.

The report by the Global Humanitarian Forum, set up by Kofi Annan, the former head of the United Nations, looked at the latest information on changing weather patterns and how they are affecting humans in terms of spreading disease and causing starvation and even conflict.

It found 325 million people are already seriously affected by climate change through damage to crops, homes and livelihoods at a total economic cost of $125 billion (£78 billion) every year.

Mr Annan said the report was a "clarion call" to world leaders to negotiate an international deal on climate change in Copenhagen at the end of this year that keeps temperature rises below 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F).
