Photo from Wikimedia Commons: A schematic showing the regions where natural disasters will occur due to climate change. The schematic was based on the Environmentally Induced Migration map from GRID Arendal (http://www.wanaforum.org/home/images/pdf/climate_refugees.jpg ). Although the map was deleted by GRID Arendal (see http://www.grida.no/general/4700.aspx , http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,757713,00.html ) due to the fact that the number of refugees was incorrect, the map itself did not show the migration (it showed only the areas where natural disasters would occur) and hence remained accurate. It has now been uploaded to wikimedia commons for the benefit of some climate-change related articles at wikipedia. Note that a list of islands nations which will be submerged within a decade or so can be found online, ie at http://socyberty.com/issues/islands-which-may-disappear-due-to-global-wa... , ... The fact btw why the number of refugees wasn't correct (of not importance to the image, but perhaps intresting to know) can in part also be blamed on the fact that the adaption of the people themselves can't be accuratly predicted, see also: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/05/bangladesh/belt-text
