For people such as those who live in Kivalina, an Inupiat community in Arctic Alaska, climate change is not theoretical. University of California researcher/journalist Christine Shearer, who works with CoalSwarm and SourceWatch, investigates the story of climate refugees and their ongoing legal struggles against fossil fuel companies for their part in greenhouse gas emission, and the creation of false debates about climate change in her compelling book, Kivalina: A Climate Change Story (Haymarket Books).

"This story is a tragedy ... It's a tragedy because it's unnecessary, the product, as the author shows, of calculation, deception, manipulation, and greed in some of the biggest and richest companies on earth." – Bill McKibben

Shearer's most recent article on Climate Progress: "Relocating Alaska Natives"
