Nelson Kanuk is a senior at Mt. Edgecumbe High School, in Sitka.

When he’s not at school, Kanuk lives in Kipnuk, a small village along the Kugkaktlik River. The river bank is moving closer to his family home, and he says climate change is the culprit. Now he’s suing the state of Alaska, with the help of an Oregon-based nonprofit. The case asks the state government to take action to address climate change.

KCAW’s Ed Ronco reported the story for Thursday’s (3-14-13) All Things Considered.
