  7. This is an absolutely FANTASTIC piece of reporting from ProPublica (as usual!) and the NYT Magazine! Make no mistake that the notion of "climate refugees" spilling over the borders WILL be used by the far-right in North America (as it is already being used by the "ecofascists" in Europe) as a political sledgehammer to further exclude "brown people" from coming into the country.
