Climate change: Graphically illustrated state by state

The Weather Channel has a great new feature — the United States of Climate Change — a story told graphically (or comic book-style if you will.)

It was reported and written by Dale Carpenter and illustrated by Arkansas native Nate Powell, who we've featured before.

The website features pages that bring home the impact of climate change with a story from each state. The first link above goes to the Arkansas entry, titled "Awaiting a Wave."  It's more about the Marshall Islands than Arkansas, where many Marshallese have sought work. The islands are threatened by rising sea levels and that could mean an even greater migration to the Springdale area in the years ahead. It's a poignant story told by real people. One sample from the work:
