O'Fishel Quest: In search of the science behind climate change

FishelquestWhile most scientists believe climate change is happening and that human activity is largely the cause, the public is more divided.

From Raleigh to Barrow and back again, photojournalist Richard Adkins and I have traveled the continent looking for answers on climate change. We've spoken to leading climate scientists as well as local communication and religion experts to understand the science of climate change, what changes we can already see affecting our state and why such a divide exists between scientists and the general public.

Watch the full documentary, "Exploring Climate Change," in the video player below and our full interviews with climate scientists to see what we learned. Join the conversation using the hashtag #OFishelQuest on Twitter or Facebook and follow along below.
