We all are used to a deluge of catastrophic articles predicting millions of climate refugees (like that 2007 UN report that misfired spectacularly) and climate wars triggered by climate change. So it comes as a welcome surprise to read in today’s “LE FIGARO”, which is the largest French conservative newspaper, a refreshing article “Il n’y aura pas de guerres climatiques”. The author is Bruno Tertrais, a researcher of the Foundation for Strategic Research. He also has written a recent book “L’Apocalypse n’est pas pour demain” (apocalypse will not happen tomorrow), published in March 2011.
