“We just had a 500 year flood. Well, we’ve had eight 500 or 100 year floods in the last two years. What does that mean? I think it’s time to stop calling it that and just start calling it…life.” Cherri Foytlin, of Diné and Cherokee Tribes.
In episode 75 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons takes a journey with the Freedom to Breath bus tour on location in New Orleans. During his visit, Doug attends a town hall on women and minority groups talking about climate resilience; a visit to Africatown to learn about the legacy of racism and environmental pollution and a visit to a protest community that is also serving as a gateway for refugees fleeing storm events and climate change. Women, tribal members, people of color and members of the LGBT community talk about how climate uniquely impacts them and what steps they are taking to adapt to climate change. It’s an exciting episode, with interviews with minority voices on the front lines of climate change.
