Louisiana fishing town fights for survival against rising seas

Climate Cast

We’re going on an American road trip, of sorts, for this week’s Climate Cast.

We start in Jean Lafitte, a village in the Louisiana bayou that awaits the impending doom of rising ocean waters taking over the community.

Next, we head to Minnesota’s Lake Minnetonka where researchers are studying how warmer, shorter winters are affecting lakes come summertime.

Finally, we end up in Montana’s Glacier National Park. There, scientists have been documenting the final days of ice in the iconic park. Photos illustrate the scale of the destruction.

    I realized global warming was a real thing when I understood pretty much all glaciers, northern and southern hemisphere, were in retreat at the same time.
