Reality Check: Climate Change – A Conversation With Ed Patterson and Debra Worth

What about Climate change, it’s so confusing. Which is it – are we warming? Or cooling? What are Ozone holes? And what about sea level rise? Do we really have to worry about all this?

This week on Reality Check host Lee Tuley will explore the answers to these questions and more with Ed Patterson and Debra Worth, climate change activists, here, on KCIW.
