The typhoon hit the Philippines on November 8, 2013. It was the 4th strongest tropical cyclone in world history and the strongest ever to make landfall in world history. This record was previously held by Hurricane Camille which hit the US in 1969. Typhoon Haiyan can be seen as an indication of things to come in the future if steps are not taken to prevent climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, with tropical cyclones likely to become more intense and more damaging.Greenpeace laments the massive loss of lives, now in the thousands and asks that aid be given to the survivors of this terrible tragedy. Greenpeace urges delegates at the 19th Conference of Parties (COP19) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Warsaw, Poland to use the typhoon Yolanda as a grim reminder to their governments that every investment in fossil fuels is an investment in death and destruction.
