  A United Nations scientific panel on Climate Change released a report earlier this month that warned of a worsening crisis by 2040. Here in Hawaii scientists have been raising the red flag about global warming and sea level rise and the need to deal with protecting our natural resources.

University of Hawaii geologist  Chip Fletcher sat down to talk about the climate change study, what it means for Hawaii and how he views the headlines.
