Given the news of the past week, it is entirely possible that this information was missed.  According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, October 2015 was the warmest on record.  Please do review this report as there are many other 2015 climate facts that generate just as much concern.

Even before the Paris killings, the confirmation of the bomb aboard the Russian airliner, and the other recent acts of violence, much concern was being raised about immigrants and refugees from Syria, Iraq, and their neighboring countries.  Following Paris, the debate about closing borders in the European Union and the United States has increased, particularly with regard to Muslims, and especially given that this is the presidential debate season in the U.S.

It is unpleasant to imagine the response when the millions who live along the coastal areas of the world, including the U.S., are displaced by rising seas.  Where will they go, and how will they be received?

As an aside, but very much to the point, one of the interviewees in the linked article (“United States”) above indicates that Timothy McVeigh is unique, and that terrorism against Western allies is perpetrated by Muslims.  It is very important to note that Ted Kaczynski (the Unabomber) and the many, many perpetrators of gun violence in the U.S. are (or were) not Muslim.

Take care.
