I. INTRODUCTION
The recent film The Day After Tomorrow reveals a Hollywood version of a
very real problem. After scientists discover a devastating storm caused by global
climate change developing over the United States, the government evacuates the
southern half of the United States. Hundreds of millions of people flee and settle
in crowded refugee camps throughout Mexico.1 The film illustrates the poten-
tially disastrous consequences of mass displacement caused by environmental
crises.
