S African fishermen feel the heat

Fishing communities on the coast are reeling from effects of carbon dioxide emissions.

    Germany is hosting an international climate change conference, with hopes of reaching a deal on cuts to carbon dioxide emissions.

    Among the worst offenders is South Africa - it is estimated to be the 13th largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world.

    Along the country's coast, local fishing communities are already seeing the effects.
