LuAnne Thompson (Oceanography) Climate change and Migration: Lessons learned
from a study of county level population change after hurricanes

Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 3:30 PM
OCN 425

ATM S/ESS/OCEAN 586 Current Research in Climate Change Seminar

In this seminar series we are be exploring both the impacts of climate
change (both slow changes and extreme events) and the challenges that
climate change brings to society. Projections of climate change suggest
human populations will be impacted in multiple ways. The stability of
governments will be challenged by extreme events that can impact housing,
water and food supply. Stresses on natural resources can in turn lead to
migration, political instability, violence, and humanitarian disasters. In
addition, the strength of human society also relies on energy, food, and
water security.
