What does climate change have to do with tornado formation?
Higher temperatures lead to the melting of snow and ice.
The strongest hurricanes are getting more intense, more frequent, and lasting longer.
The U.S. is the most tornado-prone country on the planet.
Why the increase in heavy downpours? Warmer air means more evaporation off the oceans, and more water vapor in the atmosphere.
Heat waves cause more than just sweat — they can be deadly.
When you think about extreme weather events, you may not think of drought.
