2020 Summer Package

2020 Summer Package

In the second installment of our new seasonal packages, we’re updating popular summer analyses that will help you in explaining the connections between weather and our changing climate.

2020 Hurricane Season

2020 Hurricane Season

Rising temperatures are causing hurricanes to become more intense, produce more rainfall, and create higher storm surges.

Summer Starting Earlier

Summer Starting Earlier

With climate change, summertime heat is starting earlier for many parts of the U.S., squeezing out the colder seasons and prolonging the health risks of extreme heat.

CO2 and the Climate Curve

CO2 and the Climate Curve

Even as emissions temporarily decline during the pandemic, global temperatures and CO2 levels continue to rise.

Travel and Air Pollution During Covid-19

Travel and Air Pollution During Covid-19

Air quality has improved substantially as travel declines during the pandemic, though these changes may not last for long.
