Climate Refugees and Arizona’s Future

  • Yavapai College Verde Campus 601 West Black Hills Drive Clarkdale, AZ, 86324 United States (map)

YC Verde Campus OLLI & NAZCCA co-sponsored discussion group - Part 2 of a 3-part series on climate change. Climate Change is already affecting human wellbeing in almost all parts of the Earth and certainly here in Arizona as well. Smaller climate pressures like rising temperatures have already led to large numbers of climate migrants and larger climate pressures are now also leading to more and more climate refugees in our region. Current pressures and future projections will be discussed.
