Heat of the Moment: Climate Migrants
Play • 20 min

We introduce the second season of Heat of the Moment, a podcast that, like And Now The Hard Part, tells stories from the front lines of one of the world's biggest challenges: the climate crisis.

We are in the midst of one of the greatest moments of human migration in recent history. Wars and unrest in the Middle East, political tensions in Latin America, and ethnic clashes in places like Myanmar have caused millions of people to flee their homes looking for safety and security for themselves and their families. But there’s also another set of migrants: those who are fleeing because they’ve determined their homes are no longer safe from the massive forces of climate change.

On this episode of Heat of the Moment, how one woman and her family made the difficult decision to move. We hear from Jamie Beck Alexander who has spent her career helping others deal with the effects of climate change, only to realize that she needed to change her own living situation.
