Here's an excerpt from the article:
"Climate change could render Sudan 'uninhabitable'
Experts say that without quick intervention, parts of the African country -- already one of the most vulnerable in the world -- could become uninhabitable as a result of climate change."North Africa is already hot and is strongly increasing in temperature. At some point in this century, part of the region will become uninhabitable," Jos Lelieveld, a climate scientist from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, told CNN.
"That will string from Morocco all the way through to Saudi Arabia," he said."
It is definitely worth clicking on the link, if only to see the map of projected impact in Africa. The population in this region and the adjacent area in the Middle East is somewhere between 200 and 400 million people. You need only reflect on the massive destabilization in Europe, and the awakening of xenophobic hatred there and in the United States, that has resulted from the displacement of five million people in Syria, to imagine the catastrophic effect such a thing would represent- I do not think I am exaggerating a bit to suggest that it could precipitate the end of civilization in Europe, India, China and God knows where else, as these countries were subject to by far the largest mass migration in Human history.
And more on this issue, from a post today by Gaius Publius at Hullabaloo.
"What if not just 2.5% of world population, but 10% or 20% of world population fell into environmental refugee status? We're now looking at 700 million to 1.5 billion people, not just fleeing, but starving, fighting and dying as well. In other words, utter world chaos of every type imaginable."
And lots more along these lines. This is real, people, and the selection of a new leader in the United States makes it absolutely sure that we will do nothing for the next four years to deal with it.
