- "...migration from high-risk areas has already begun in isolated locations across the United States, where people are looking for homes less vulnerable to recurrent flooding, rising tides, melting permafrost, and other effects of global climate disruption. Noted examples ... include the Isle de Jean Charles in the Louisiana Bayou and the Village of Newtok in Alaska, where daily life is becoming more difficult because of changing environmental conditions." Excerpt from the report Reaching Higher Ground.
