When a major storm hit Shishmaref, Alaska in 2005, the town became a poster child for climate change in the Arctic. Dramatic pictures of houses falling into the sea showed up in news outlets around the world. But the story here starts way before that storm.
Each season, Threshold explores one story from the natural world, and what it says about us. Season two is all about the Arctic: what it is, what’s changing there, and why that matters for everybody.
