Kivalina : a climate change story / Christine Shearer.


"For the people of Kivalina, Alaska, the price of further climate change denial could be the complete devastation of their lives and culture. Their village must be relocated to survive, but neither the fossil fuel giants or the U.s. government are willing to take full responsibility."--Page 4 of cover.
