Last week "Nightline" featured reports on climate change with an examination of the coastal community of the Gullah Geechee nation and the threat of rising sea levels; Guatemala's "dry corridor," where families who have lived off of the land for generations are now starving and their children are unable to get what they need to grow and thrive; and Australia's Great Barrier Reef, as scientists are trying to intervene in hopes of preserving the natural wonder. "Nightline" also interviewed NBA legend Scottie Pippen, who opened up about his relationship with former teammate Michael Jordan, and covered the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse and the tragedy at Travis Scott's Astroworld concert, looking at how it turned deadly and the chaos of the event.
