Climate refugees

“According to the United Nations, some 150 million people will become climate refugees by 2050. The journalists and photographers of Collectif Argos have spent four years seeking out the first wave of people displaced by the consequences of climate change. Using the massive 2,500-page report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as their guide, these photographers and writers pinpointed nine locales around the world in which global warming has had a measurable impact. In Climate Refugees, they take us to these places– from the dust bowl that was once Lake Chad to the melting permafrost in Alaska– offering a first-hand look in words and photographs at the devastating effects of rising global temperatures on the daily lives of ordinary people”–publisher’s web site.
