I'm trying to understand what your point is. Is it that people have historically been displaced by violence and other causes in the past, so it's no big deal if it happens in the future, and the causes of displacement aren't worth mitigating against? The failures of several governments in the Middle East and North Africa have among their causes food insecurity exacerbated by climate change. No question that they'll ultimately be resettled somewhere (not that they "should" be- inevitably, they will) but why shouldn't we be cognizant of the risks of future mass displacements, and try to prevent them?
