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 2 of a special 2 part series, Brian Edwards-Tiekert takes us through the 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.

    • Thanks for the feedback Maggie. Did you hear our recent Women Rising show? I’m curious about what you think of that episode. It dealt with water, women and the environment. Safe travels! Your blog is great, I really appreciated the recent post on street art (http://www.maggieink.com/?p=507).
