Climate change arrives in Caribbean Islands/Does the March for Science help or hinder?

May 5, 2017

While the US is dealing with a climate-change denying administration, sea levels are rising for some of our neighbors.  Hugh Sealy is a professor in the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at St. George's University in Grenada. He was a lead negotiator for small island states at the COP22 Summit in Morocco.

As the March for Science organizers put it, they’re marching “to take a public stand against budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets, and threats to dismantle government agencies which could damage our health, food, air, water, climate, and put jobs at risk.”  But at least one scientist who’s done extensive research on climate change thinks the march is a bad idea. We’re joined by Robert S. Young, Professor of Coastal Geology at Western Carolina University.
