For the first time in world history, a new crisis is forcing people into the uncertain life of a refugee: climate change.
A climate refugee is a person displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters, and thousands of these displaced persons have already been set adrift around the world because their countries simply weren’t prepared to deal with the dramatic consequences of climate change.
The Pentagon now considers climate change a national security risk and the term climate wars is being talked about in war-room like environments in Washington D.C.
Climate Refugees is a non-partisan, award-winning documentary that seeks to open people’s eyes to the human face of climate change, and the dire consequences that await countries that refuse to take action until it’s too late.
