When Americans die, there’s no shortage of deaths to be filled by refugees

Posted October 20, 2019 10:01:03As a nation we are suffering a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions.

We’ve seen an uptick in refugee arrivals from the Middle East and Africa, and we’ve seen the refugee population grow in the United States in recent years.

There is no shortage, however, of people to fill the gap.

A new study from the Pew Research Center found that, while most of the world is not experiencing a humanitarian emergency, the United Nations and other international organizations estimate there are up to 2.6 million deaths that need to be addressed by next year.

The Pew study, titled The New War on Refugees: The Numbers of Deaths from Humanitarian Crisis in the Age of Climate Change, shows that the current world population of about 7.5 billion is forecast to increase by 1.7 billion between 2019 and 2030, and there are an estimated 5.3 million deaths to deal with, or about 1 in 2,500.

The world’s most populous country, China, has an estimated 6.7 million refugees and migrants, according to the World Health Organization.

According to the study, global humanitarian crises, including wars and famines, and the spread of infectious diseases are projected to reach 4.5 million by 2030, which means the United Kingdom and other countries will face the greatest humanitarian crisis, with 1.8 million deaths per year.

The Pew report also notes that the global average temperature is projected to increase between 5 and 7 degrees Fahrenheit (3 and 5 degrees Celsius), which could mean that the world’s water supply will be threatened.

The study also notes the increased risk of new pandemics, including the coronavirus, as well as the possibility that climate change could bring about “severe consequences for the world economy and the health and safety of its citizens.”

The new refugee crisis is projected as a result of the climate change crisis, the Pew study states.

But the number of people displaced by climate change is not an exact science.

Some experts say it’s more accurate to say the world population will be at least 1.3 billion by the year 2030, with another 3.5 to 4 billion people displaced.

According a U.N. report released last year, the number and number of deaths from natural disasters in the world could reach 1.4 billion by 2020, the report stated.
