Share Article

A new segment seeks to educate on the impact of shoreline erosion.

James Earl Jones (The Sandlot, Star Wars) brings his signature voice and authoritative presence to “Behind the Scenes,” a mini documentary series designed to educate, enlighten and spark conversation about groundbreaking stories and the salient issues of our time. As host, the award-winning and critically-acclaimed actor leads the topic of Shoreline Erosion in the short-form episode.

Shoreline erosion is a naturally occurring process that happens around lakes, rivers, streams and along sea coasts. The process is generally a gradual one attributed to the slow removal of sediments from shorelines. However, it can occur rapidly due to intense and sudden weather spikes including hurricanes, severe storms, high waves, heavy rain, ice and the loss of rooted vegetation that keep some shorelines intact.

Climate change has also been linked to shoreline erosion. Rising sea levels, changes in weather patterns and intensity, as well as changes in water temperature all play a role in shoreline erosion. However, there are things we can do to be environmental conscious and there are some basic principles about shoreline stabilization that can be implemented.

In this installment of “Behind the Scenes,” Jones hosts an exploration about shoreline erosion that should prove enlightening.

“Behind The Scenes” segments are created for public television and offered to Public Television PBS member stations throughout the United States. The team works with strategic partners and media distributors to produce stories about the salient issues of the day.
