Climate change causes conflict | Mass Migration
In Central America, the issue is also climate change. The coffee crop, the corn crop, all crops are failing. People are in dire straights, facing starvation if they stay. Violence comes with desperation. They really have no choice but to walk north.
Mass migration is one of many consequences of climate change along with floods, drought, fires, super storms, etc. Why isn’t climate change noted in the news. There is something we could do to help people stay in their countries of origin. We could stop polluting the atmosphere. Per capita, the U.S. is the biggest polluter. We need a more knowledgeable, more intelligent and better read president to get us off fossil fuels as is happening in so many other places where there is intelligent leadership.
In the meanwhile I would like to sponsor a family being held at the border, parents and children. How can I do that?
