The episodes feature celebrity investigators such as Harrison Ford, Matt Damon and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who each have a history of environmental activism, and well-known journalists such as Thomas Friedman, each of whom have a background in environmental reportage.
These “correspondents” travel to areas around the world and throughout the U.S. affected by global warming to interview experts and ordinary people affected by, and seeking solutions to, the impacts of climate change. They act as proxies for the audience, asking questions to find out people’s opinions and to discover the scientific evidence.
