Every second one person moves on account of climate change an global warming.
The climate refugee could be one of the most important challenge of the twenty century. Climate change is cause by natural events such as volcanic eruptions (it happened many time since earth was formed) but global warming is because of humans activities : -cutting down forest = warming greenhouse gases -rising temperatues and global warming = glaciers and ice elaps = create flooding and make sea level rise - rising temperature = desertification
The sea level rise 0.6 meter during the last century it cause problem in low lying coastal area. More informations about the climate refugees statistics: http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/green-science/climate-refugee.htm

The Tuvalu state exemple:
The Tuvalu state is in Pacific ocean in Polynesia. It is one of the smaller country in the world. There is 11600 citizens only, they don’t have a real economy except fishing, they survive thank to the international programs help, the tourism it is not develop because it is real complicated to reach this place. The highest point in this atoll is only 5 meters above the sea level. On account of global warming they already know that everybody have to leave the country the next years. According to the scientists the Tuvalu state will totally disappear this century so the governement make a deal already with Australia and New Zealand for host the citizens.
It is just an exemple, at present in the world there is three more climatic refugees than war refugees.
