Is this just really bad luck for Ellicott City, or is it something else?
Our CEO and Chief Scientist Ben Strauss talks with Meteorologist Cris Martinez about how more intense hurricanes are fueled by warmer ocean temperatures.
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.
