“The Refugees of the Blue Planet” is an NFB film about environmental  refugees.  With stunning footage from around the globe, it chronicles the  disturbing stories of the human consequences of environmental destruction  through climate change, overexploitation, pollution and envrionmental  degradation.  There are a number of sections on internal refugees in Canada,  fleeing from homes near sour-gas wells which risk dangerous releases of powerful  neurotoxins in our quest to pillage the Earth for the last dregs of our  remaining natural gas.
