In order to not complicate Professor's "Dreamer" thread with more discussion about the climate change effects on the world displacement of persons, I'm starting a new thread in case anyone has any ideas for solutions to brainstorm a problem that seems to be intractable.

A lot of displacement will be internal. For instance should people be allowed to keep rebuilding on flood plains or be allowed to buy insurance there? What happened to the people displaced in New Orleans after the last hurricane? etc.

Anyhow, at least have a look at the abstract on the link to see what we are facing and the economic as well as human costs of the natural disasters that are increasing in number and intensity.

The past is to be respected/acknowledged, not worshipped. It is in our future we will find our greatness. Pierre Trudeau
