Global warming is making children shorter, according to scientists at John Hopkins University and Bloomberg School of Medicine. They say that children born in Peru during the El Niño event of 1997-98 were on average shorter and smaller, which they attribute to a poorer diet thanks to flooding and other catastrophic climate events. But others have pointed out that simply allowing Peru to become an industrialised country would mitigate the problem.
