Today Show’s Al Roker’s Climate Change Reports

(New York, NY -AP) — NBC’s Today Show weatherman Al Roker is in Utqiagvik  the northern most city in Alaska, which many consider to be Ground Zero for climate change. In his reports, Roker talks to scientists who are leading research about how climate change is happening now.

Roker says researchers are optimistic we’ll be able to reduce the production of greenhouse gases, which is causing climate change at an accelerated rate. In his second report Tuesday morning, Roker looks at how climate change is already effecting residents of Utqiagvik  and how it might be a cautionary tale for the rest of us.
