The project blends journalism with activism. Created by former "60 Minutes" producers Joel Bach and David Gelber, the "Years" series tries to show the "current and intensifying effects of climate change on everyday Americans and demonstrate how they can take action and be part of the solution," according to promotional materials.Source: CNBC
