Climate Change and Migration: A Choice Between Flight and Death!

Climate Change And Migration Have Co-existed Since Long Ago And Caused The Greatest Threat To Humanity!
DELHI, India - Jan. 22, 2022 - PRLog -- In the 21st century, climate change stands as the single greatest threat to humanity. With every increase in the global temperature, millions of lives are being pushed into the brink of fear of losing their homes. Increasing droughts, floods, extreme heat and wildfires cause massive internal displacement, forcing millions of people to flee their homes. In 2020, climate disasters caused more internal migration than wars, and the displacement is steadily on the rise. The current scientific measurements predict that climate change will affect the large livable parts of the world and make them even worse to sustain lives. Nearly 19 percent of the world's livable part would be in the hot zone by 2070, which is a home to millions of people. According to the UN, climate disasters have caused an average 3.1 million displacements a year since 2008. By 2050, there would be more than 200 million climate refugees, putting more pressure on the migration crisis. As climate change and migration continue to rise, the question arises that where would the people go?

The Impact Of Climate Change On Human Lives

Climate change and migration have co-existed since long ago. Extreme weather and natural disasters have always been the major reasons for human displacement. The evidence of climate migration dates back to the 'Iron Age.' Two separate researches by IIT Kharagpur, referring to the Iron Age and current climate situation respectively, found the link between extreme climate events and displacement. The research supports the hypothesis with convincing evidence that claims the collapse of Indus Valley Civilization caused by climate change. The new findings suggest that climate change triggers more extreme weather, and the numbers of extreme weather events significantly increased over the past 50-years. Climate change and extreme weather events affect humans in several ways and they have severe consequences.

Extreme Weather

Early humans might have survived the extreme weather events, but the current climate crisis is pushing people into the extreme and unbearable conditions. By 2100, temperatures in many parts of the world could rise to the point that moving outdoors for a few hours will result in death.
