Description:The Marshall Islands, with an average elevation of six feet above sea level, are among the most sensitive environments to long term climate change. Rising seas may force the people of these islands to flee. Halfway around the world, another culture in a vastly different environment is also confronting the life-altering realities of a warming world - the Arctic. Part of these ice-bound lands will soon be submerged. This film gives a look at the human implications of global warming.We also hear the voices of those who are working constantly to minimize the impact of global warming, examine its causes, and encourage change.
