Today we learn what it means to be a climate refugee and how many people are fleeing because of environmental reasons. (Student Spotlight alert!) We talk first to Grace Adcox, a graduate student at Vanderbilt University studying refugees, conflict, and climate. Then we talk to Amali Tower, the founder of Climate Refugees, a human rights organization that advocates for the rights of those displaced by the environment and climate change. We get into the definitions of a climate refugee, how they are distinct from a "refugee" as defined by international law, and how their status is changing.
