  • Nearly all climatologists believe the planet will undergo climate change throughout the twenty-first century. In a series of three articles, this master's thesis explores the effects of the phenomenon on the American South. The first article examines the effects of carbon dioxide emissions on coral reef ecosystems in coastal Florida. The second describes the impact of climate change on North Carolina's wine industry. The final article chronicles a young Southern activist's efforts to persuade government officials to regulate greenhouse gases. Research included a literature review, interviews with more than 30 sources, as well as visits to the Florida Keys, North Carolina's vineyards, and several universities in North Carolina. The thesis suggests that climate change will have significant effects on the environments, economies and communities of the South.
