What is Climate Gentrification? "It is gentrification, which is when a neighborhood undergoes renovation and more affluent residents begin to move in. But climate gentrification happens when these residents move in because of changing climate and because of changing or natural disaster issues in other more affluent areas of the country."

Climate is, we pay attention to the weather trends...over a 30-year period."
