Climate change and slavery

Environmental damage exacerbates poverty, making it easier for poor people to be trafficked

Increasingly it seems that there's a link between a damaged environment and growth in modern-day slavery.

"Climate change influences every single aspect of life on Earth. But in order to truly combat climate change, at this stage, we must combat our own comfortable ways of life, the ways of life we were born into. This means it's far easier to kick climate change issues into the long grass than to address it head on.

"Peer-reviewed research continues to show that climate change underlies poverty and that poverty drives human trafficking. If we want to get at the root of slavery, it seems we're neglecting one of its deepest layers."
