Climate refugees to flood Arctic regions of world (2015 to 3015 period of time) while global warming causes massive die-off of billions of humans; some will survive in polar cities: prepare now!

Climate refugee

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A climate refugee is a person who is forced to relocate, either to a new country or to a new location within their home country, due to global warming related environmental disasters. Such disasters may be evidence of human-influenced ecological change and disruption of Earth's climate system, primarily through the emissions of greenhouse gases, although other natural factors may also play a role. Humankind may have drastically altered the chemical composition of the global atmosphere, with profound implications for climate.[1]

Such disturbances can result in increased droughts, desertification, sea level rise, and disruption of seasonal weather patterns. A statistically significant correlation between migration and environmental degradation including climate change was shown by Afifi and Warner (2007), controlling for the already established major drivers of migration.[2]
