Code Red for ... Kentucky?

We've all heard about the climate report released on Monday, and how it is the most alarming report so far. Bluntly, if we don't address carbon emissions NOW, the whole earth is in trouble.

OK, we got that. But, what exactly does that mean for Kentucky? We're not Miami, so we're not going to have ocean flooding. And, we're not the Southwest, which may wind up having to go back to being a desert because of lack of water. So, what does "Code Red for humanity" mean for the Bluegrass State?

We got a chance to interview Dr. Jessica Tierney, a professor at the University of Arizona and one of the co-authors of the report. We asked her about the overall findings of the report, and about what it means for our state. Give a listen to what Dr. Tierney had to say.
