Newtok, Alaska

Residents in Newtok, Alaska are living with the effects of climate change, with thawing permafrost, tilting
houses, sinking boardwalks, in conjunction with aging fuel tanks and other infrastructure that cannot be replaced because of
laws that prevent public investment in flood-prone localities. (Photo credit: F. S. Chapin III).
