Scientists have known for years that global warming can exacerbate storms. But our understanding of the connection between hurricanes and climate change has evolved significantly in just the past year.
Parts of the United States are experiencing blizzard and frigid temperatures, possibly spurred by climatic changes. It's reminiscent of the types of extreme conditions we witnessed over and over last year.
In the last weeks, we've seen deadly heat waves and wildfires in the U.S. West, massive floods in South Asia and the ravages of hurricanes in the Caribbean. What does science tell us about the links between these extreme weather events and a changing climate?
Global average temperatures have now exceeded the 20th-century average every month for the past 32 years!
In this episode of the WRI Podcast, we learn about how mayors are leading the fight for climate resiliency, and what they need to succeed.
