The number of people threatened by climate change-triggered flooding is about three times higher than previously thought, a new study says.
This is caused by the land, especially in Asia and the developing world, being several feet lower than what space-based radar had previously calculated, according to a study, by Climate Centrala New Jersey based nonprofit organisation of scientists and journalists.
So instead of 80 million people living in at risk low-lying areas that would flood annually by 2050 as the world warms, the new study finds the population at risk is closer to 300 million people. These people are in some of the poorest regions of the world.
