Pictures about #ClimateRefugees

In the Fall, polar bears are everywhere around Kaktovik, an Arctic village home to 260 people. They doze on sand spits, roughhouse in the shallows, pad down the beach and attract hundreds of tourists. At night, the bears sneak into town, staying until the #polarbear patrol chases them off. On the surface, these animals might not look like members of a species facing possible extinction. Many seem healthy and plump — especially in the early fall, when their presence overlaps with the Inupiat village’s whaling season. But the bears in Kaktovik are #climaterefugees, on land because the sea ice they need to hunt seals is receding. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, and the ice cover is retreating at a pace that startles even those who predicted the decline. Now, bears like this one are going into the winter skinnier, smaller and in poorer condition. In Kaktovik, at least for now, whales are providing alternative source of food. But dead whale is not a polar bear’s preferred cuisine. @joshhaner took this photo while on #nytassignment in Alaska.

During storms, the house fills with up to a foot of mud. Amiya’s parents, Keith Brunet and Keisha McGehee, want to leave. Keith, who has worked as an oysterman, a fisherman and a tugboat captain, grew up on the island. “ItLast weekend I moved into our new apartment in Chiang Mai.

Shishmaref is a remote village of about 600 people located 30 miles south of the Arctic Circle and it sits atop rapidly melting permafrost because of climate change. As the water temperatures have increased the time span the Chukchi Sea stays frozen is getting shorter each year which then exposes the shoreline to the winter storms accelerating the erosion of the coastline. It is estimated that the island loses about 10 feet to erosion each year. While residents rely heavily on a subsistence lifestyle hunting and gathering their food they will disappear should the traditionally Inupiaq Eskimo village not be relocated as a unit and the residents end up getting scattered around in the mainland of Alaska making these residents one of the first climate refugees from the United States.

@kris10yoga: @southfloridateamemc hit the pavement bright & early Saturday morning to #RunForFlorida & the Caribbean. Together with virtual runners weThis year I had the opportunity to attend the UN Climate Change Conference #cop23

It was an amazing experience to see 20,000 people come together to exchange ideas on how to solve #climatechange 
The consensus was that we are not doing enough to prevent the planet from warming 2 degrees. 2 degrees warming will result in many undesired consequences: #sealevelrise #climaterefugees #foodscarcity #waterscarcity

Apart from climate change mitigation, the protection of climate refugees has been one of the hotly discussed topics at the summit. http://bit.ly/2zKcXYJ

The WHO also estimates that by the year 2050, between 150 and 200 million people will become climate change refugees. That is more than 3 times the population of France, and about two thirds of the population of the United States. A Climate refugee is defined as a person who must leave his or her home and community because of the effects of climate change and global warming. 2050 is a short 33 years away, yet, to date, no nation or international institution has been willing to discuss the potential outcomes of this situation. In today’s legal system, climate change refugees are unable to ask for any type of asylum because the formal definition of a refugee currently does not recognize the potential of climate driven migration. In 2006 an amend to the definition was requested, but was rejected by the United Nations Human Rights Council. Today, both the International Organization for Migration and United Nations Human Rights Council still refuse to recognize the existence of environmental refugee. With this account, two pressing questions remain: “where will these people go, and who will pay for their displacement?” Author: Anna Chahuneau//Photography: Matthew Henry #environment #displacement #nature #icare #earth #love #sustainability #sustainable #life #people #environmentalscience #conservation #climatechange #landscape #ecofriendly #recycle #water #eco #natural #gogreen #environmentalist #organic #outdoors #forest #migration #climaterefugees #savenature #refugee insta topsy.oneFollowing displaced families from over 10 cities through the course of 6 years, resilience was being used in a number of news reports and other communication materials. It was being related to the Filipino trait of positivity amidst adversity. But on the ground, it was a different story. Families and communities relocated to almost inhabitable areas voice out grievances on how they are treated and almost given no choice on shelter and livelihood issues. For years they have been hidden under the guise of resilience.

Donate Link in Bio. insta topsy.onePeople Spotting @cop23fj: The #indigenous delegation have taken centre stage at #COP23 making a strong call to be part of the solution to #ClimateChange emphasising their traditional wisdom and knowledge of #MotherNature. “I wish people would get into their heads that money is merely a supplement to survive and that the world must be respected....we must start reducing what we ourselves have increased” #timeforachange insta topsy.onePeople Watching @cop23fj: The Fiji presence throughout the event has added incredible positive energy. The message from Fiji’s delegation is that we are “all in the same canoe” when it comes to climate change. Fiji is at the greatest risk for actual physical extinction from #ClimateChange and over 40 communities have already lost their homes due to rising sea levels. #COP23 #Fiji insta topsy.oneAs climate talks in Bonn progress, it is vital that the protection of climate refugees remains a priority. The people forced to move from their homes are most often those who had the least to do with creating the problem.
