Climatologists fear that global warming will cause ocean levels to rise so drastically that whole islands will be submerged. In Washed Away, we meet two island communities struggling to prevent the disappearance of land they have lived on for centuries. For residents of Shishmaref, Alaska, in the Far North, and tropical Tuvalu, a small country in the South Pacific, the situation grows more urgent every day. Scientist believe that unless we reduce our consumption of fossil fuels, even the island of Manhattan is at risk because of rising water levels caused by climate change. Can something be done to prevent these impending catastrophes? Arctic Mission is a collection of five documentary films that explore the impact of global warming on Canada's North.
