“How could less harsh climate migration laws prevent genocides?”

Today marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Eighty years ago, 6 million Jews and 11 million Roma, Slavs, Afro-Europeans, Soviet civilians and prisoners of war, Disabled people, homosexual men, and political dissidents were massacred in what is now known as one of the greatest atrocities to ever occur. Much of this was caused by the fact that other nations such as the United States refused to take in refugees from these groups even as they knew that the genocide was going on. 

In the future, climate refugee population is going to explode in the coming years. If no action is taken, then many of these communities may face certain death. By allowing them into other countries, we can avert this catastrophe from happening. This is Why Less Harsh Climate Migration Laws Can Prevent Genocides.
