Climate change contributes to European immigrant crisis

Even the US Pentagon predicted this. But the regressives, usually hawkish about national security, can't bring themselves to admit these facts. See this article which states:

"From 2006 to 2011, large swaths of Syria suffered an extreme drought that, according to climatologists, was exacerbated by climate change. The drought lead to increased poverty and relocation to urban areas, according to a recent report by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and cited by Scientific American. 'That drought, in addition to its mismanagement by the Assad regime, contributed to the displacement of two million in Syria,' says Francesco Femia, of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Climate and Security. 'That internal displacement may have contributed to the social unrest that precipitated the civil war. Which generated the refugee flows into Europe.' And what happened in Syria, he says, is likely to play out elsewhere going forward."
