Climate change has slowed down progress on ending global inequality

Stanford Earth researchers have quantified the economic impact of climate change over half a century, revealing the extent to which global warming has made poor countries poorer and rich countries richer.

Global warming is worsening the global wealth gap

Global warming has already created winners and losers across the world, with poorer, tropical nations suffering the most even though they contributed far less to the problem, a study from Stanford Earth finds.

Inequalities of climate change: Rich nations get richer, poor get poorer

Climate change has already created a sobering patchwork of economic inequality across the globe, according to Stanford researchers Marshall Burke and Noah Diffenbaugh.

Climate change has already made poor countries poorer

Numerous studies have predicted that poor nations will suffer the greatest devastation from climate change. A new analysis by Noah Diffenbaugh and Marshall Burke finds it’s already been happening for decades.

Climate change has increased global economic inequality

A rising tide may lift all boats. But when it comes to economic prosperity, the same can't be said for rising temperatures. That's the conclusion of a new study by Noah Diffenbaugh and Marshall Burke.

Global warming makes world's rich richer and poor poorer

Soaring temperatures have enriched cooler, wealthier countries while dragging down economic growth in warmer nations, according to a new study by Marshall Burke and Noah Diffenbaugh.

Here's what the world will look like once we solve climate change

What will life be like after we've solved climate change? Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh and Chris Field comment. "Every single proposed solution will simultaneously improve life and decrease carbon emissions."

Climate change has increased global inequality. It will only get worse

Scientists have long predicted that warmer temperatures caused by climate change will have the biggest impact on the world’s poorest, most vulnerable people. New research indicates that’s already happened.

Global warming may boost economic inequality

Stanford researchers say warmer temperatures are widening the chasm separating richer and poorer countries, effectively boosting the economies of many wealthy polluters while dampening growth in much of the developing world.

Global inequality is decreasing, but climate change is slowing progress

New research by Stanford Earth's Marshall Burke and Noah Diffenbaugh shows that global warming has already imposed an economic penalty on many countries.

Climate change makes poor countries poorer, widening global inequality

Climate change is having a serious impact on economic growth across the world – and it's worse for poor countries that already had a lot of catching up to do, according to a new study.

Global wealth gap would be smaller today without climate change

Climate change creates winners and losers. Norway is among the winners; Nigeria among the losers. Those are the stark findings of a peer-reviewed paper by Stanford professors Marshall Burke and Noah Diffenbaugh.

A climate change solution slowly gains ground

Of the 65 million tons of carbon dioxide that is pumped underground in the United States every year, about 60 million tons is for enhanced oil recovery, says Stanford Earth's Sally Benson.
