Climate change’s effects and workable solutions
On Earth, climate change means the heat is on. Global temperatures are rising. In Yemen, farmers are losing their livelihoods because there’s no more water. This helps explain the current war there. In Norway, the permafrost is thawing. School children are going on strike to demand change.
RTD talks to Yemeni farmers, economists and scientists studying climate change about the effects of global warming. Some despair of reducing carbon emissions to limit temperature rises, but there may be better ways to handle the crisis.
