Clip: Season 21 Episode 14 | 1m 56s Video has closed captioning.

In this excerpt from The Hottest August, two New Yorkers -- an artist/designer in his studio and a naturalist on his boat in Jamaica Bay -- are asked about their futures and the planet's. The designer talks specifically about issues facing the African American community for whom the future "becomes less important than actually trying to figure out how to survive for the next day."
