The great displacement : climate change and the next American migration

Bittle, Jake (author.).

Summary: "We think about the dangers of climate change in the future tense: that as global warming gets worse over the coming decades, millions of people will scatter around the world fleeing famine and rising seas. What we often don't realize is that the consequences of climate change are already visible, right here in the United States. Bittle shows that, from fire-scorched California to the soaked watersheds of inland North Carolina, people are moving. Insurance and mortgage markets are already shifting to reflect mounting climate risk, pricing people out of risky areas. He tells the stories of those already experiencing life on the move, and show how radically climate change will transform our lives--and reshape the geography of the United States."--
