Ookkay... Now we have "climate refugees"....:meds:


Former Vice President Al Gore blamed climate change Thursday for the food shortages that resulted in the 2010 Arab Spring as well as the conflict in Syria.

Gore made these remarks at the South Korean resort island of Jeju during the “Challenges and Opportunities of Climate Change” Forum for Peace and Prosperity, The Korea Herald reported.

Gore claimed that “climate refugees” from Syria were a result of food climate change caused shortages from the Syrian civil war. The former vice president pointed to a 2006-2010 drought he blamed on climate change that pushed 1.5 million who lived on Syrian farms into the cities.

“When these climate refugees collided with another 1.5 million refugees from the Iraq War in the cities of Syria, the social explosion happened,” he said.
