"America's Climate Refugees"

"The people of Newtok, on the west coast of Alaska and about 400 miles south of the Bering Strait that separates the state from Russia, are living a slow-motion disaster that will end, very possibly within the next five years, with the entire village being washed away." ... "Climate change has accelerated the normal process of erosion along Alaska's rivers and coasts - especially near the shores of the Bering and Arctic seas."

Suzanne Goldenberg reports a feature package from Newtok, Alaska, with video by Richard Sprenger for the Guardian May 13-16, 2013.
