Was Hurricane Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to warming climate? Recent studies show that sea levels from North Carolina to Canada have been rising at three to four times the global average since 1950. By definition, higher seas mean higher storm surges. This means that storms that might once have not caused a problem are getting more dangerous. And huge storms, whether amplified by global warming or not, can go from destructive to catastrophic.
Come to the December New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA Inside the Megastorm and then join in a discussion with a local scientist to learn about the role of global warming in hurricanes and extreme weather.
