Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Climate Change

Climate Refugees and Arizona's Future

Climate Change is already affecting human well-being in almost all parts of the Earth and certainly here in Arizona. More minor climate pressures like rising temperatures have already led to large numbers of climate migrants, and larger climate pressures are now also leading to more and more climate refugees in our region. Current pressures and future projections will be discussed.
