One Planet: How The Climate Crisis Is Impacting Migration Across International Borders

  On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're discussing a New York Times / ProPublica investigation about climate migration. Today, one percent of the world is a barely livable hot zone. By 2070, that could go up to 19 percent.


According to the report, hundreds of millions of people from Central America to Sudan to the Mekong Delta will be forced to choose between flight or death. The result will almost certainly be the greatest wave of global migration the world has seen.
