Editorial Reviews

Review

" Climate Refugees stands out among the many publications on climate change and migration in recent years. With vivid photographs and well-written narratives, it presents a striking picture of human displacement and migration resulting from climate-related disasters."--Hua Qin, Human Ecology



"People of the Arctic, the Sundarbans, the Maldives, the Longbaoshan, the Louisiana Gulf Coast, Tuvalu, Lake Chad, and the Himalayas comprise the nine communities Collectif Argos visited with pen and camera to produce, in 2007, the sad and haunting Climate Refugees, recently translated and published in English. While the global pool of climate literature is crowded and it's becoming increasingly difficult to advance the climate story, this book does so by documenting firsthand the day-to-day experience of people being challenged by weather conditions so extreme, they are simply forced to quit, pull up roots, and move to higher ground. Their remote and rugged communities, all struggling to adapt to chaos, are canaries in the global mine of climate change. And their stories are moral barometers for the rest of the world." Mark Dowie Orion

About the Author

Created in 2001, Collectif Argos brings together ten journalists--photographers and writers--who share a commitment to documenting the changes taking place in the world---ecological, economic, political, and cultural, subtle or spectacular, global or local.

Climate Refugees presents facts via interviews with key people whose homes are threatened or already compromised by rising water or changing weather. Anecdotes and photos give the reader close up views of nine ground-zero sites under seige by global warming. A must read. I'm passing my copy around.

This beautiful book is a painful reminder of the horrendous conditions for many people of our World, victims of war, famine and inevitably many other tragedies related to Climate Change. This is not an issue of far away places. It affects all of us.

I was expecting facts and figures, charts and graphs. In fact, I was a bit suspicious when I thumbed through this and saw all the gorgeous photos in this book: it seemed too luxurious for such a serious subject. It is also beautifully designed and printed, and the text is often impressionistic. But it really is very moving and worthwhile, and the images help to make sense of the text.
I would recommend this to anyone interested in knowing more about climate change, and also to activists to be reminded of how timely and vital their work is.
It is not a lengthy text and the images make it irresistible reading, even though the translation is sometimes poor. Sadly, we are due for another edition soon.
