According to a new Biden administration report, “tens of millions” of people are “expected to be displaced over the next two to three decades” as a consequence of elevated global temperatures.

The document, titled “Report on the Impact of Climate Change on Migration,” was commissioned by President Biden earlier this year. It was released on October 20 to help the United States prepare for what experts predict will be an increase in migration as a result of climate change.

Climate change is likely to intensify geopolitical tensions, especially in poorer countries, according to a separate national intelligence estimate released on Oct. 21. This will “exacerbate the dangers to US national security interests,” according to the administration.

Afghanistan, Colombia, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Iraq, Myanmar, Nicaragua, North Korea, and Pakistan were recognized as being at high risk of climate disruption, which could lead to a flood of migration, as per the projection.

Climate change and its repercussions, according to Vice President Kamala Harris, are one of the numerous primary causes of rising migration from Central America to the United States.

The Biden administration is, at present, grappling with a rush of migrants crossing the southern border, relying on the Trump-era provision known as Title 42, which allows asylum seekers to be deported because they pose a public health concern during the coronavirus pandemic.

The repercussions of climate change are already occurring, as seen by the increasing number of extreme weather disasters over the last few years. Weather-related disasters displaced an average of 21.5 million people globally between 2008 and 2016, according to UN High Commissioner for Refugees statistics.In a call about the new research on Oct. 20, a senior Biden administration official stated, “No country will be spared the challenges directly tied to climate change.”
