STORY: 50M CLIMATE REFUGEES BY 2020 DATELINE: Feb. 22, 2011 LENGTH: 0:00:36 LOCATION: WASHINTON VO Experts have warned that fifty million environmental refugees, who will suffer from food shortages brought on by climate change, are expected to head to northern countries by 2020. A conference hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science has heard climate change is already impacting food security and food safety. Experts there said people migrate when they are not living in sustainable conditions. Southern Europe is already seeing a sharp increase in the flow of migrants from Africa, which used to be slow but steady. Experts say as food production is affected by climate change, more people living in Africa are expected to try and migrate north to southern Europe.
