Time. It's so elemental to our lives that we never stop to think about the simple idea, what is time? But time is also such an overwhelming part of almost everything we do.

Climate stories are always feel too big to wrap our heads around, so maybe a good way to approach the topic is to treat it like the gigantic issue it is.

In this century, tens of millions of people will be forced to move, and so much more about the way we live will change. So, when people talk about saving the earth, are we forgetting that we also need to save ourselves? Take a dive into the rising waters as Dan tries to figure out the big picture of what climate change will mean. Twitter (@AssortedGoodsPC) Insta (@AssortedGoodsPod)
