Tangier Island will be in the spotlight tonight.
Mayor James Eskridge will appear on CNN’s Global Town Hall event with former Vice President Al Gore.
The issue: Climate Change.
Gore will be discussing his latest film “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.”
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Tangier Council member Anna Pruitt-Parks called the event on her Facebook page “a pretty big deal” adding that the mayor will be debating Gore.
Tangier Island is experiencing the effects of rising sea levels produced by climate change.
