Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds

350.org-Climate Change and Mass Migration

On International Migrants Day, we must remember that standing for climate justice means standing for migrant justice.
As the climate crisis intensifies, more and more people around the world will be forced to flee their homes. By 2050, climate change and extreme weather could force more than 200 million people to migrate.
Building the just world we need means we must fight for policies that support people who are most impacted by the climate crisis. We can’t claim to fight for climate justice if we turn away climate refugees after the storms are over and the droughts have ended — but the damage remains.
