As the global climate changes, some countries are going to feel the impact of global warming more than others. Notre Dame has created an annual index showing which countries will get away with a smaller impact and which countries stand to suffer the most, and The Eco Experts have put the information together into an easy to read map. This year, the results have a few surprises and more than a little bad news. Despite having tons of vulnerable coastline, countries like Norway and New Zealand will be better off, while less developed countries like Chad and Haiti could be in big trouble. Which just goes to show that, once again, the poorest nations will suffer the consequences that the wealthy, industrial countries have caused.
