Discusses the potentially disastrous effects of global warming and climatic change, particularly for the low-lying Marshall Islands and the Arctic areas of North America. The Marshall Islands, with an average elevation of six feet above sea level, are among the most sensitive environments to long term climate change and rising seas may force the inhabitants to flee their islands. Part of the Arctic region's ice-bound lands may be submerged and already, thawing glaciers, changing wildlife populations, and thinning ice over once stable lands are rapidly destabilizing traditional ways of northern Native life.
