The suns sets as an iceberg floats in the Nuup Kangerlua Fjord near Nuuk in southwestern Greenland on Aug. 1, 2017. Greenland's glaciers have been melting and retreating at an accelerated pace in recent years due to warmer temperatures.

Survey: Climate Change Resonates With Millennials, Gen Z

A majority of young people in America are increasingly concerned about climate change, according to a new survey released from the University of Chicago’s GenForward Project.

GenForward is a national bi-monthly survey of racially diverse young adults, 18 to 36 years old, on a range of topics, to look at how race and ethnicity play a role in how respondents think about and view the the environments around them.

Morning Shift digs into the survey’s latest findings.
