Extreme Weather Events: How is Baron Helping?
Talk of extreme weather events is on almost everyone’s mind these days. And rightfully so. According to a United Nations report, “climate-related disasters jumped 83 percent — from 3,656 events during the 1980-1999 period to 6,681 in the past 20 years”. Significant flooding has more than doubled. One doesn’t have to look back for more than a few months to find evidence that droughts, wildfires, and heatwaves are rising.
