  • 2016•05•18     United States of America     Wisconsin Public Radio

    Communities throughout the world are being forced to resettle as a result of climate change. They’re being called “climate refugees.” Earlier this year, the Department of Housing and Urban Development designated $1 billion to help a dozen or so communities in the United States build stronger levees, dams and drainage systems. We’re joined by a pair of environmental experts and a member of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe in Louisiana, which is is moving its entire community.
