With climate change upon us, the Earth is changing the way it functions. What exactly is occurring and where are we headed? Some scientists are saying the world is changing more rapidly than we first expected, ecosystems are shifting and some species are dying out. What does this mean for humanity? Maria Armoudian discusses the consequences of a changing environment with Larry Schweiger.

Larry Schweiger is the President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, America’s largest conservation organization. He is the author of Last Chance: Preserving Life on Earth.
