There is a new phenomenon in the global arena called "Climate Refugees". A climate refugees is a person displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters. Such disasters result from incremental and rapid ecological change, resulting in increased droughts, desertification, sea level rise. and the more frequent occurrence of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, cyclones, fires, mass flooding and tornadoes. All this is causing mass global migration and border conflicts. For the first time, the Pentagon now considers climate change a national security risk and the term climate wars is being talked about in war-room like environments in Washington D. C. "Climate Refugees" is an important and timely documentary film that uncovers the unbelievable plight of people around the work displaced by climatically-induced environmental disasters. The film illuminates -for the first time-the human face of climate change as civilization now finds itself, facing the confluence of overpopulation, lack of resources and a changing climate. "Climate Refugees" was the centerpiece film at the United Nations' Climate Summit in Copenhagen last December, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2010, played at dozens of film festivals around the world to rave reviews, has received multiple awards ans an overwhelming audience response.
