How imminent is the danger from climate change? That depends on where you live. Risk consultancy group Maplecroft has ranked the Earth's countries by climate risk, The Huffington Post reports, and Africa and Asia have the most reason to worry.

Bangladesh, Guinea-Bissau, and Sierra Leone face the worst threats because of difficulties in fighting climate changes' effects, susceptibility to extreme weather, and health and agricultural vulnerabilities.

The news is better for Ireland, Norway, and Iceland, thanks in part to those countries' steps to combat climate change. The U.S. also fares well, ranking 158 out of 193 in terms of climate risk.
