Global warming not responsible for Madagascar famine: study

 PARIS, Dec 2, 2021 (BSS/AFP) - Global warming played only a minimal role in
the famine that has hit Madagascar, according to a new study published
Thursday which contradicts a UN description of the crisis as a "climate
change famine".

  "Based on observations and climate modelling, the occurrence of poor rains
as observed from July 2019 to June 2021 in Southern Madagascar has not
significantly increased due to human-caused climate change," the World
Weather Attribution network of scientists said.
