The World Bank Chief was speaking at the annual meeting with the International Monetary Fund.

This is not the first time the World Bank chief has warned about the dangers of climate change. Three weeks ago Kim claimedclimate change was costing lives. Kim said 1.2 million people died because of the pollution from coal fired plants… which, of course, is complete speculation and not based on any solid scientific data.

RTCC reported:

World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim has compared climate change to Ebola, suggesting that inaction on both is “killing people”.

Speaking at the World Bank’s annual meeting with the International Monetary Fund, Kim said that the Bank’s work on climate change was informing its response to the deadly disease, which has killed over 4,000 people mainly in West Africa.

Ebola and climate change have a few things in common. Most importantly, we are running out of time to find solutions to both,” he said.

“Also, until very recently, the plans to fight them were either non-existent or inadequate. And, inaction is literally killing people – one because of the rapid spread of a deadly virus, the other from the poisoning of the atmosphere and the oceans.

“And finally, perhaps most critically from our point of view, resolving these problems is essential to development, whether from the perspective of human suffering, economic growth, or public health.”
