http://www.foreignpolicy.com/story/cms. ... ry_id=3922We are no longer arguing over the reality of climate change, but rather, its potential consequences. According to one emerging “conventional wisdom,” climate change will lead to international and civil wars, a rise in the number of failed states, terrorism, crime, and a stampede of migration toward developed countries.
The bottom line of this article seems to be that it's going to be a fight for resources. As the climate changes and people start migrating away from disaster to the more developed places on earth, it will be a free for all over who controls the limited resources. This puts is all back into the hands of the powers that be in politics. We can survive global warming if our leaders don't kill us in the process.
