World Bank: Climate change could cause massive damage
What would the world be like if it were four-degrees warmer? The answer, in a new report released by the World Bank, is dire: extreme heat waves, floods, drought, sea-level rice, food shortages.
The world is on course to warm as much as 4 degrees Celsius, or 7 degrees Fahrenheit, by 2100, prompting extreme heat-waves, severe drought and major floods as sea-level rises, warns the World Bank in a new report.

No conflict of interest here. The report was completed by Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics, whose mission is to educate about climate change, will be objective.
This just in. UN commissions study from McDonald's on effects of fast food and obesity. McD's says no link found.
Why not commission an independent pool of scientist, not a group of scientist who work for an organization that is based on the belief of climate change.
