However, it remains unclear whether sprawl helps explain differences in levels of social capital, or health, across countries. The flooding naturally had a much greater impact on the lower elevations and thus on African Americans and the poor. The report adds that global climate change will have its greatest effects on the poorest nations: They help protect shorelines from natural disasters such as tsunamis, and they attract tens of billions of dollars in tourism.
