More than two million people in Zambia are facing famine.
Two years of severe drought in southern Africa has caused mass-harvest failures.
The rainy season usually starts in October, but it has rapidly moved back to December while rainfall patterns have also quickly changed - from a more even spread, to sporadic dumpings.
Zambia is just one country facing this crisis.
In Tajikistan, the area of its glaciers - crucial to water security in Central Asia - has been rapidly decreasing.
MORE ON THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE:
At the same time, countries continue to break temperature records. The heat reached 53.5 degrees Celsius in Pakistan in 2017 - part of a heatwave that stretched across the Middle East and Southern Europe.
This is just a small sample. The trend of increasingly severe disasters is felt across the world and, disproportionately, in the world's poorest countries. Perhaps that's why we hear so little of these disasters in Australia - they're not relatable enough to us.
And because of this, when a natural disaster of unprecedented scale - whether bushfire, flood or cyclone - happens in Australia, it is seen in isolation and not part of a clear global trend.
As the evidence becomes clearer, those who deny the changing climate need to grab onto increasingly thin strands of conspiracy. The bushfire crisis has been the perfect case - all it took was one (since edited) News Corp article to give a conspiracy theory air.
The replies to this tweet - and subsequent spread of this line through Facebook in the US and Australia - show how quickly misinformation, and conspiracy, can gain traction:
Truly Disgusting that people would do this! God Bless Australia.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) January 7, 2020
More than 180 alleged arsonists have been arrested since the start of the bushfire season, with 29 blazes deliberately lit in the Shoalhaven region of southeast NSW in just three months. https://t.co/xP0PtMQbuD
It used a NSW Police press release to state that 183 people had been charged for starting bushfires. In reality, 24 were for deliberately lighting fires, the others largely for failing to comply with fire bans or discarding a lit cigarette - many of which occurred in the previous fire season. As police and fire services stressed, arson has not been a factor in the fires' severity.
Yet just one spark started a conspiracy. When Donald Trump Jr tweeted this incorrect article, it was a matter of minutes before the "greenie arsonist gangs starting fires to prove climate change" myth was born among his followers, spreading quickly throughout Facebook in varying forms.
The debate was muddied.
And for what purpose? Reducing dependence on fossil fuels has been proven feasible in many developed countries - including the UK. It's unsurprising to see billionaires who benefit from a lack of climate action, like Andrew Forrest and Gina Rinehart, have already bought into the arson line.
Why be their pawns?
