Climate Refugees Refugees are typically displaced by war or prosecution, but a far bigger world population is being displaced by climate change.  UC Davis is screening the award-winning documentary  "Climate Refugees" on Wednesday, March 14th at 6:30pm, on the 2nd Floor of the Plant Sciences Building. The film explores the problems created when changing climates displace large populations.  We'll speak with the film's producer, Justin Hogan, and UC Davis professor David Kyle, who's with the organization that's sponsoring the film, the UC Davis Blum Center for Developing Societies. Sociologist David Kyle is also the Executive Director of the Giffort Center for Population Studies at UC Davis.
