Climate displacement is happening now in the U.S. and we must pay attention

Sophie Joseph (President of The Joseph Family Foundation) and Lucy Solomon (EVP of TJFF) sat down with The Tennessean to discuss the effects of climate change.

An estimated 1.2 billion people will be displaced by climate-related events by 2050. That means that in less than 30 years from now, more than 1 out of every 8 people will have lost their homes. Take a minute, and let that sink in.

In the meantime, the world is moving quickly, and with it, people are moving too. While mobility may be increasing worldwide, the sad truth is that the majority of migrants today, both at home and abroad, find themselves fleeing because they have to, whether it be from instances of violence (which is often widely, and rightfully, reported on) or, just as often, from climate catastrophes.

When we say climate catastrophes, we don’t just mean sporadic natural disasters. This crisis is occurring largely due to climate change, which causes increased desertification and rising sea levels.
