Hi, what are you looking for?

Summers are getting hotter. Sea levels are rising. Tornados and hurricanes threaten the populace and the landscape. Yet climate change is not a unilaterally accepted concept in Mississippi. “Rising Tides and Temperatures” documents the impact of shifting weather patterns on farms, communities, industries and government institutions. The stories, videos and podcasts of this project also tell the stories of the people whose lives and livelihoods are affected. Some of them believe the state’s climate is changing dramatically – and possibly irrevocably -- and some do not. This project details scientific data and relates human experiences so that readers can decide for themselves.
