Global warming: Honolulu climate change meeting to be held Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It  looks like global warming may be affecting Hawaii at an alarming rate. Climate change experts say temperatures are rising at higher elevations -- faster than the global average.

Freshwater sources are also shrinking.
