British Opposition Leader Blames Developed Countries For Cyclone Idai

The United Kingdom’s Leader of the Opposition, Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn, said that there is an urgent need to deal with pollution as it contributes to climate change.

Corbyn admitted that the industrialised counties in the Northern Hemisphere are responsible for pollution and yet, the poor countries in the Southern Hemisphere suffer the most. He said:

The devastating cyclone affecting millions of people in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi is yet another reminder that while corporations in the global North are the main polluters, the poor in the South suffer most. Climate change is killing people. We must do more, now.

Corbyn’s sentiments come as millions of people were affected by Tropical Cyclone Idai, which, according to the United Natiions, is possibly the deadliest storm to ever hit Africa.
