PBS LearningMedia: Micronesia’s Changing Climate | Micronesia Conservation Trust—Discover what Pacific Island communities can do to reduce the impact of climate change in these four videos. In “The Problem,” fishermen discuss why things are “not right” in Micronesia; for example, fish stocks are declining and coral reefs are dying. In “The Cause,” we learn that these effects are linked to global climate change. In “The Greenhouse Effect,” we learn more about the science behind climate change. In “Adaptation,” we see how Micronesians are trying to reduce the harmful effects of climate change to preserve their homeland and secure their heritage.
