Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Exit Honduras: A climate in crisis | Fault Lines” – below is their description.

Over the years, hundreds of thousands of Hondurans have made the dangerous trip north to the United States, hoping to escape poverty and violence.

But as the country endures repeated droughts, hurricanes and floods, people are also fleeing the effects of climate change.

Central America has become hotter and drier over the last few decades. And storms have grown more powerful. Hurricanes Eta and Iota pummeled Honduras in 2020 and left 175,000 people displaced.

Fault Lines reports from Honduras on how extreme weather is upending livelihoods and forcing people to leave their homes.
