Climate change has rendered some parts of the world uninhabitable, prompting millions of people to be displaced. This is especially the case for already vulnerable populations in regions that bear most of the burden of rising temperatures due to greenhouse gas emissions. The legal categorization of “climate migrants” or “climate refugees” is a hotly contested issue that will have serious implications for those displaced by climate catastrophes. To discuss issues related to climate-driven migration, joining us today is Dr. Ilil Benjamin, senior lecturer in the Sociology department at Johns Hopkins University.
