The sandstorms and animal deaths in Mongolia are a warning sign of what will happen to us if we don’t take climate change seriously.

Thousands of animals and dozens of people have been dying in sandstorms in Mongolia and China for years.

And if that wasn’t enough, Mongolian livestock are also being decimated by summer drought and winter cold.

The latter weather anomaly is colloquially known as dzud.
