There is a new phenomenon in the global arena called “Climate Refugees”, people who are displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters. Climate change, both incremental and rapid , are resulting in increased droughts, desertification, sea level rise, and the more frequent occurrence of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, cyclones, fires, mass flooding and tornadoes. All this is causing mass global migration and border conflicts. The Pentagon now considers climate change a national security risk and the term “Climate Wars” is being talked about in war-room like environments in Washington D.C.
