Who Makes Policy Campaign 2016 Edition

There may be a better reason to leave the country than just a Trump victory

We’ve heard it time and time again since the devastation that occurred a month ago- “I am going to move to (insert any country, island, or planet here)”. While some have found that attitude to be the extremist way of responding to opposing political authority, that attitude may get a boost in membership soon due to climate change. Climate change has really affected this country, and if you look at California’s  (a state that is pushing for  greenhouse gas emission controls) pattern of drought lately, you can see that migration has been the response of many of its residents. Widespread crop and pasture losses and shortages of water in reservoirs, streams, and wells is what California is dealing with and could become a reality for other states as well given an administration that believes climate change isn’t something to be worried about or that is even exists.  In case you’re thinking about packing up those boxes, for whatever reason, this old Atlantic article recommends Switzerland.
