Why Climate Change is a Threat to Human Rights

Today I am sharing a TED Talk from past UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002) Mary Robinson: Why Climate Change is a Threat to Human Rights.

About the video: 

Climate change is unfair. While rich countries can fight against rising oceans and dying farm fields, poor people worldwide have their lives upended -- and their human rights threatened -- by killer storms, starvation and the loss of their lands. Mary Robinson asks us to join the movement for worldwide climate justice.
