With all the attention that has been payed to this issue, very few people realize the staggering problem we are creating. Scientists estimate that, at the rate things are going, a large area of the Middle East and North Africa may be uninhabitable by 2050 or 2070- that is, with a regular occurrence of daytime temperatures beyond that at which humans are capable of surviving. We have seen the absolute chaos and revival of the ugliest political views in Europe and elsewhere caused by the displacement of ten to twenty million people from Syria; but these areas have a population of 250 to 300 million. If these people are forced out of their homelands into Europe and Asia, it will create a catastrophe beyond anything ever known in human history. And the way things look today, that is going to happen, because stopping it will damage the wealth of a few hundred rich sociopaths.
