Climate activists often draw our attention to future climate catastrophes and project ever- growing numbers of refugees as a result. In this roundtable discussion, three scholars will focus on the present realities and historical evolution of climate refugees in three case studies: post-hurricane New Orleans, water-scarce Cairo, and the Turkish wetlands. They will describe how societies already live with man-made climate change and ongoing political catastrophes.
