CNN says climate change caused by the burning of fossil fuels is killing ten million people per year.
Actual numbers show that less than 10,000 people per year die from all types of natural disasters, including storms, floods, extreme temperatures and drought. This is down 80% from a century ago.
A century ago, millions of people faced starvation from famine caused by record heat.
Prior to 1890, severe drought and famine struck India every four years, but NOAA said the warming climate from 1890 to 1940 greatly reduced the frequency of droughts in China.
Over the past 2,000 years, China had thousands of famines, some of which killed close to ten million people.
