Climate change is a complex topic and even some of the experts have a difficult time grasping all of the implications. As the climate changes so does the society and world in which we live. The most recent findings of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) point out what the science knows and the risks ahead.
Now a documentary series tries to bring the knowledge of climate change to the ordinary person. It does this by telling the stories of people affected by climate change. How does degrading the environment affect the world and the food you eat? How does drought relate to climate change? What are the risks involved in our future?
These are some of the questions addressed in a new Showtime series airing Sunday, April 13, 2014, at 10 p.m. called “Years of Living Dangerously”. It is a nine-part series that will address a number of topics related to climate change.
The first episode is already available on the internet at the website www.yearsoflivingdangerously.com . If you do not get Showtime, you can watch it here. Below is a discussion on the documentary and climate change from two of the participants in the program on a recent Face The Nation on CBS:
