A huge meteor which slammed into the southern Pacific Ocean about 2.5 million years ago generated tsunamis hundreds of meters high, and may have destablilized the entire planet's climate system.
Oxfam is warning that climate change represents a far greater threat to the world's poor than previously believed, because of the effects of extreme weather on harvests and food prices.
