TV shows about Climate Change & us.

Meghan G from says:

"On the topic of global warming and the climate I thought I would share that NPR and National Geographic have teamed up to do a year long series called Climate Connections. They are looking at how we are affecting the climate and more importantly and mostly overlooked by other media outlets, how the climate is affecting us. Great stories from all over the world that really make you think." Links:

Thanks Meghan!
