John Knox speaks to Reuters about the impact of a global temperature increase

On May 1, 2015, Laurie Goering of Reuters published an article stating that a group of scientists and experts, including John Knox, warned that a global climate temperature increase of 2 degrees Celsius will not prevent climate change's worst impacts. The experts warned that weather-related disasters will increase in frequency, small Pacific island states may become uninhabitable, and individuals living in coastal cities will be displaced. Knox was quoted as saying, "Even moving from one to two degrees of warming negatively affects the full enjoyment of a wide range of human rights."
