Part 2 of the interview. Congressman Mark Sanford represents South Carolina's First District which includes the coastal cities of Charleston, Beaufort, Hilton Head and many smaller sea island communities. This is his full interview from the SCETV documentary "Sea Change."
The following questions were asked in part two of this video:
- As an elected official, how important is it to be a conscience of the community as opposed to a reflection of the community?
- What about the threat to historically significant cultures and national historic sites?
- There are health-related impacts of change of climate. How should we respond to these threats?
- It has been well documented that the military ranks sea level rise and climate change as a national security risk. What are your thoughts on that?
