Economic policy is often blamed when people use the phrase, "The rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer." But a new study, published in Nature Climate Change and from researchers at Rutgers, Princeton, Yale, and Arizona State universities, is highlighting climate change’s role in increasing the divide between the rich and the poor… "We tend to think of climate change as just a problem of physics and biology." said Rutgers’ Malin Pinksy, a professor in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. "But people react to climate change as well, and at the moment we don’t have a good understanding for the impacts of human behavior on natural resources affected by climate change."
