Climate Chaos in the South is a not about the science or reasons behind climate change but about the devastating impact that it is already having on many who live in the southern hemisphere.
Featuring interviews with the victims as well as the experts in Africa, Asia and South America, Climate Chaos in the South captures vividly the changes that climate change has wrought not just on the environment but on the lives and livelihoods of millions across three continents. Fertile land has been scorched and turned to desert while on the coasts increases in sea temperature has depleted fish stocks and a rising sea level has destroyed settlements. The huge rise in cyclones and other natural disasters continue to destroy homes on an unimaginable scale and the overall result is turning entire populations into climate refugees. While climate change once looked like a problem of the future, this film demonstrates with absolute clarity that it is a humanitarian catastrophe of the present.
Made with the support of Greenpeace, Oxfam, VOICE and numerous others, Climate Chaos in the South is the first comprehensive survey of how climate change is already devastating the lives of millions.
