Europe's Refugee Crisis and Syria's Climate Conflict

Current and former Pentagon officials have been talking about climate security for years.

The refugee crisis in Syria (spreading now to Europe) began with a five-year drought that has been exacerbated by climate change. The Smithsonian published an article on the issue in 2013. The New York Times and National Geographic covered the issue in March.

A new comic available through Upworthy, circulating via Facebook, tells the story in a few images.
