Climate Gentrification


“How will climate change spur new forms of gentrification?”


Climate change is already causing mass migrations around the world as less and less habitable spots become available. If a lower-income community inhabits a particularly safe spot, then predatory forces may want to push them out to make a profit. This Climate Gentrification can be seen in Little Haiti in Miami, where real-estate prices in the neighborhood have been skyrocketing in recent years due to its higher elevation and resilience to climate change.
