CNN Digital opinion writer John Sutter continues to report on climate change through his “2 Degrees” project. Scientists and economists say that if the climate warms more than 2 degrees Celsius, it will greatly up the odds of climate catastrophe….and it’s happening to Marshall Island.
When he launched this project in April, Sutter asked what readers were most interested in CNN covering — and they chose how 2 Degrees could affect climate refugees from a disappearing coast. After searching for a country that met the criteria, Sutter traveled to the Marshall Islands and spent 9 days there learning about how the Marshallese were affected by the rising sea and their disappearing coast.
In this multi-part report, he tells the story of the Marshallese through photos and videos with the engaging and heart-breaking narratives of the inhabitants weaved throughout. He also visits northwest Arkansas, where some people have relocated to escape the threat of being swept away.

President Barack Obama on Friday morning called Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling, during his interview with CNN's Justice correspondent Pamela Brown.
S.E Cupp, CNN Political Commentator, shares her reaction on same sex marriage stating, "I deeply love my party, it really has to reconcile with the fact that we are going to become relics if we don’t get to where these people are, they are patriots, they aren’t asking for a lot."
In an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow, Napster co-founder and Spotify board member Sean Parker talks about the recent Taylor Swift and Apple ‘clash.’
“Taylor is a bit of an anomaly in the music industry in the sense that she is still able to sell a lot of downloads. She’s still able to sell – in some parts of the country – CDs. She has a huge fan base, and she sort of defies gravity in the sense that very few artists have that kind of built-in fan base and will continue to buy their albums.”
When Harlow asked about Swift being on Spotify, Parker states:
“The interesting thing in looking at the numbers, there was no evidence in looking at the data, of a change in consumption or usage, when Taylor left the platform. So even if you take out one, major, contemporary artist, it really doesn’t affect the overall usage.”
Harlow and Parker also discuss the future of music and subscription services.
“This is an industry that is going through an incredibly agonizing and long transition. It’s pretty clear at this point, that the subscription model has won and we see that now with Apple music.”
