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:

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
