    It has been demonstrated that nationalism takes prescience over understanding and decency.

    But if you think about it, nationalism makes sense in a way. If you have resources that are diminishing, then you have to protect your own. Although I support taking in Syrian refugees, I wouldn't think Europe can take in hundreds of millions of Africans and the Middle Easterners. It would lead to collapse.

    It would have to be an international effort. The Syrian refugees were but a small, non-threatening group (in regards to resource taxation) and the some of the populace were having none of it from the start. I don't buy that the prejudice that dominated the early part of that catastrophe was caused because the individuals were worried about water or food.

    It was about cultural clashes and shifting demographics with the Syrians, but overall they can be absorbed into Europe.

    However once many large swaths of the earth start having the same problems as Syria, who's going to be on the international committee to take care of them? There may be only a handful of countries that would be habitable and powerful enough to coordinate any relief and even so in such a future they will look out for themselves first.

    It would be an overwhelming problem. A problem that can be avoided if we take action and make sure our voice is heard in regards to preserving the environment. :D
