Environmental writers John R. Wennersten and Denise Robbins lay out in thorough detail the immense scope of the problem of climate change-driven human migration. The authors cite how climate scientists warned in the 1990s that the world economy would find it far cheaper to prepare for climate change and attempt to limit it than to play catch-up at the last minute and try to adapt. Climate scientists also warned – presciently – that perhaps the most devastating impact of climate change would be human mass migration.
