Guess which nations are most likely to survive Climate Change - image

Go New Zealand! Bring on the hot summers! Every year, the University of Notre Dame's Global Adaptation Index issues a listing of which nations are best prepared to combat climate change—and which are most primed to suffer under the swelter.

ND-GAIN examines national resilience, essentially, to employ the buzz word of the day. It "ranks more than 175 countries based on their vulnerability to climate change and their readiness to adapt to the droughts, superstorms and natural disasters that climate change can cause."

The results come with few surprises. Those nations best equipped to adapt to a hotter, stormier, and more parched world tend to be rich, technologically advanced, more equal, or simply loaded with resources. Norway, for instance, takes the top spot, despite having miles and miles of vulnerable coastline.

New Zealand comes in second, with the welcome result of a better climate.
