Alaskan High Tides

This piece about the Shishmaref, Alaska climate change and how Alaska seems to be withering away into the ocean due to the dramatic weather patterns. The natives are fully aware of the change and believe that everyone should be just as aware about the fast pacing weather patterns. The dramatic changes have caused many homes to drown in the sea and many Alaskans have been left homeless. It's very life changing for the natives, but they have accepted the fate of reality and have been informing others of the water damages and how others can hopefully prevent the same tragidies. It's a very informative interview with many natives talking to keep listeners listening and from the interview, the natives sound like they are prepared for what lies ahead in this climate change disaster. These Alaskans have a heavy weight on their shoulders, but they are taking a leap into the ocean and becoming leaders. What an inspiring piece! Although I would add some music to emphasize the emotion and what the natives are saying. It would really draw the readers into the piece.
