Demographic Shifts

Central and Southeastern Europe are emptying of people.  

Certainly this is distressing for those countries, but it's very convenient for a lot of other folks.  Consider that over the next several decades, millions of people in hot parts of the world will stream northward to avoid dying of the heat.  There will be a large, almost-empty swath of Europe.  Sure, the C&E doesn't want  immigrants -- but they won't have the power to stop them, and the NIMBY crowd in the rest of Europe will be all too happy to put the fleeing hordes there instead of, say, Norway.  The climate refugees will probably be quite satisfied with that, as it would be a big improvement over the African dustbowl.
