Reviewed by Linda:If you want to understand the short-term consequences of climate change without the scientific jargon, then you will find this book by journalist Jake Bittle very enlightening. Bittle conveys the untold story of climate migration in the United States and what it means for all of us. Moving chapters tell of what has become of residents after a variety of climate-caused disasters in recent years. In communities across the country climate disasters are pushing thousands of people away from their homes, with many ending up in financial ruin. He tells how, over the next half century, millions more will be displaced in what will be the largest migration in our country’s history.
