Listen Up Northwest program 27: Global Warming and Kivalina, Alaska

Listen Up! Northwest program 27 features a single story about the impact that global warming has on one small coastal town in Alaska.

* Townspeople in Kivalina, Alaska explain and describe how they are some of the people first and most dramatically impacted by global climate change. Their town is now literally being washed away by coastal erosian as the sea rises - and with it what's left of their way of life. (Lisa Busch, Sitka AK)
