Global warming is no longer a fear for the future.  It’s threatening human civilization, now. But a good portion of humanity doesn’t seem that concerned.  On this edition, part 1 of a special 2 part series produced by Brian Edwards-Tiekert…on climate change that is happening, the political response that isn’t, and the people trying to break the gridlock.

This series was made possible by a grant from The Lia Fund, with additional support from The Cultural Conservancy.
