Well it’s a fact that warmer weather kills less people than cold weather. 
 

It’s also a fact that warm weather and higher CO2 helps plants grow, meaning more food. Ask anyone who uses industrial greenhouses. They increase CO2 in the greenhouse for that very reason. 
 

Just sayin…

Strange that Thailand and Myanmar are neighbours but far apart on the list..

just thinking out loud 

Index include factor such as how government can handle. it is easy to understand why Myanmar ranks top among Island countries, if we remember "Nargis Cyclone" in Myanmar which cost $13 billions and countless life. Another geographic advantage is majority of Thailand tends to get strong Strom from east/north after passing inland rather from west protected by mountain ranges from Burma. Burma and Bangladesh/India gets hit direct from south bay of Bengal. Please correct me.
