    Media outlets are using the findings of a new study to make the totally baseless claim that President Donald Trump’s immigrant grandfather was likely a “climate change refugee.” “Prevailing climatic conditions, crop yields and cereal prices were “significant with explanatory power between 22 and 38%” of emigration from southwestern Germany to the U.S. during the […]
