Climate Refugees

From the New York Times 5/26/21: “Even Amid a Pandemic, More Than 40 Million People Fled Their Homes. Storms, floods, wildfires and to a lesser degree, conflict, uprooted millions globally in 2020 — the largest human displacement in more than a decade.”

It’s likely there will be more climate refugees in the western United States this year as one of the worst droughts on record continues.

How will we handle the enormous, ongoing and increasing problem of displaced peoples and climate migrants? This is the central question of Lightport Books new release, “In the Middle of a Wish.”
