Global warming to hit poor worst

That's what the new UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, told the world's environmental ministers meeting in Nairobi this morning. " is the poor, in Africa and developing small island states and elsewhere, who will suffer the most, even though they are the least responsible for global warming." Daniel Wallis of Reuters writes, "Experts say Africa is the lowest emitter of the greenhouse gases blamed for rising temperatures, but due to its poverty, under-development and geography, has the most to lose under dire predictions of wrenching change in weather patterns."
