UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited Tacloban in the Philippines, which was devastated by Typhoon Yolanda, one of the strongest storms in recorded history. During his visit, Mr. Ban said, “At this time, it may be very difficult to attribute one single storm, Typhoon Yolanda, to the climate change phenomenon. The intensity and severity and magnitude of this destruction and frequency of natural disasters, extreme weather patterns, as we have seen, indicate clearly what international scientists have been saying: that it may be a man-made disaster because climate change has been caused by human beings. Then, the solution must be found by human beings. That’s why I am here.”
