Join award-winning science journalist, author and broadcaster, Gaia Vince, for an urgent investigation of environmental migration–the most underreported, seismic consequence of our climate crisis that will force us to change where–and how–we live.

 

Drought-hit regions bleeding those for whom a rural life has become untenable. Coastlines diminishing year on year. Wildfires and hurricanes leaving widening swaths of destruction. The culprit, most of us accept, is climate change, but not enough of us are confronting one of its biggest, and most present, consequences: a total reshaping of the earth’s human geography. As Gaia Vince points out early in  Nomad Century: How Climate Migration Will Reshape Our World, global migration has doubled in the past decade, on track to see literal billions displaced in the coming decades. What exactly is happening, and how will this new great migration reshape us all?
