Reviews & Awards
We all are affected by global climate change, and this film tells us how. Soon, there likely will be millions of new refugees around the globe, and our political systems are not ready. (The film) moves us through its argument seamlessly. From political to personal, historical to current, problem to solution. This is a gripping and compelling movie, with loads of examples and arguments on which to base further discussion."
- Educational Media Reviews Online
. Beautifully shot, with high quality visuals and sound. Computer graphics enhance the content, giving a visual representation of the changing face of the world, including the shrinking of vegetation in Africa and the projected rising coastlines of Florida. Although the film is lengthy, it is nicely divided into chapters that each focus on a single region, making it very usable in classroom situations. Educators will find countless discussion starters in this valuable resource, and motivated students may find inspiration."
- School Library Journal
"The film’s heart-wrenching accounts chronicle the impacts on people. The factual analysis by experts...add credence to the view that policy decisions made now can reduce the impact on populations-at-risk, as well as entire ecosystems. Highly recommended
for senior high school students or for adult classes."
–Green Teacher Magazine
A powerful documentary that should spark significant debate on the human consequences of our changing climate. Shifts the climate change debate away from meteorological considerations and into a political and economic framework, arguing that what's at stake here ultimately is the security of all nations...."
- Video Librarian
fervently captures the human fallout of climate change. Strong visuals and potent testimony…help sound the alarm for instituting new policies and working together to create solutions to cope with this imminent crisis.”

“With leading researchers and high profile political figures, Climate Refugees
presents a swell of compelling opinion about the challenges (climate) change puts on the global populations.”
“After watching Michael Nash's eye opening documentary, you quickly begin to understand that our own national security is threatened by events happening both within and outside our borders. Nash has raised a very dark red flag; now, it is up to all of us to heed his warning.”
–Moving Pictures Magazine
“A must see film that puts the human soul in the science of climate change….A resounding wakeup call for every human being….”
