Aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan

Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines on November 8, 2013 is the strongest typhoon to make landfall in the earth's history. Haiyan is the 24th typhoon to have hit the country this year, a grave indication of how extreme weather conditions have become more frequent and more intense due to climate change.

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 Yolanda as a grim reminder to their governments that every investment in fossil fuels is an investment in death and destruction.
