Based on the National Climate Assessment that was released recently, climate change has impacted the globe on many levels including forcing people to migrate from their home countries.

With catastrophic events like floods, drought and fires merged with radical politics there are new dangers that face the developed parts of the planet.

By the year 2100, sea levels could rise by six feet and would impact up to 13 million Americans by forcing them to migrate inland.

Extremes with weather can have many negative outcomes such as conflict and revolution.

In the report it says, "Whether migration in response to climate change will generally cause or exacerbate violent conflict is still uncertain."

What do you think of the assessment's findings?
