. Near total loss of historical lands leaves Indigenous nations in the US more vulnerable to climate change « JO LEE MAGAZINE

PHYS.ORG – In a first-of-its-kind study, a team of researchers attempted to quantify the massive loss of historical lands by Indigenous nations across the United States since European settlers first began laying claim to the continent. They also found historical land dispossession was associated with current and future climate risks as Indigenous peoples were forced to lands that are more exposed to a range of climate change risks and hazards and less likely to lie over valuable subsurface oil and gas resources. The study, published online Oct. 28 in the journal Science, was led by Justin Farrell of the Yale School of the Environment.
