Climate Refugees (2010, Michael Nash and Justin Hogan, USA, 86 minutes) explores in-depth the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilising effect on international politics. The documentary film turns the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences.
The filmmakers travelled the world for nearly three years to document the impact of climate change, witnessing inhabitants of countries forced to leave their homes by climatic events with little or no protection. The film features a variety of leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, including John Kerry and Newt Gingrich. All make a strong case that, whether human-caused or a product of nature, the changing climate is already creating humanitarian disasters and will inevitably lead to worldwide political instability.
