Bradley Whitford Visits the Florida Everglades

Actor Bradley Whitford travels to the Florida Everglades to see for himself how climate change is causing problems right now. He learns how salt water, brought further inland by sea level rise, is punching holes in the marsh’s habitat and killing off mangroves. Meanwhile, barrier islands that have protected Florida’s coasts from hurricanes are also starting to disappear.
