Jack Black Explores Miami's Climate and Sea-Rise Challenge
In the second season of the climate change series "Years of Living Dangerously," Jack Black explores the challenges facing Miami as global warming raises sea levels, causing inland as well as coastal flooding thanks to the porous limestone under the city. In this excerpt he talks about the outsize impact on poorer residents with Nicole Hernandez Hammer, the Southeast Advocacy Coordinator for Climate & Energy at the Union of Concerned Scientists. The series airs Wednesday evenings at 9 p.m. eastern time this fall.
