Where Will We Go?
“For eighteen months, I have been looking at global consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change. No one any longer doubts that glaciers the world over are retreating, and that Greenland and Antarctica are melting at an increasing pace. Should humanity start preparing for the biggest displacement of mankind in known history? I have tried to provide globally balanced coverage of how climate change is already affecting places like Kiribati, Fiji, the Carteret Atoll in Papua New Guinea, Bangladesh, the Guna Yala coastline in Panama, the UK and the USA. As people in all of the world’s regions become displaced at ever growing scales, where will they go?” Kadir van Lohuizen
