BC's inland waterways are a remote wonder from Knight Inlet and Klinaklini glacier to Rivers Inlet and the rainforests surrounding Denny Island. The sockeye salmon cycle in Scandinavia Bay has been disrupted by climate change and overfishing. These fish are mostly found in the Northern Pacific Ocean, and its bordering rivers.

Then we visit the Ha-litzuk Icefield, the largest in the BC Coast Mountains, where climate change is altering the landscape. Dr. Brian Menounos, University of Northern BC, describes current studies that reveal a dramatic loss in glacier size here in the last 60 years; the resulting melt-water is contributing to rising ocean levels. It is likely that some of BC's smaller glaciers will disappear over the next 100 years. We have to think about our lifestyles and find cleaner ways of generating electricity if we hope to control this loss.
