How Climate Change Affects Everything

 Climate change->Famine-> Immigration problems
Climate change will dramatically reduce crop yields in regions such as Africa, India, Bangladesh, Latin America and Australia, and migration may become very likely...
...While difficulty abounds in studying the social and political effects of climate change, the takeaway message is clear.

Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Climate Change -> Earthquakes
One particular feature that can change the balance of forces in Earth's crust is ice, in the form of glaciers and ice sheets that cover much of the area around Earth's poles plus mountains at all latitudes. The weight of ice depresses the crust on which it sits. As the ice melts, the crust below no longer has anything sitting on top of it, and so can rebound fairly rapidly... Obviously if you load and unload active faults, then you're liable to trigger earthquakes
