Why Our Warming World May Be Creating Stronger Storms

082721_HurricaneIda_125pm_0.jpg

Hurricane Ida slammed into multiple states last week. It was a Category 4 storm with winds above 150 mph and rainfall rates that broke records. A warmer world may have made hurricane Ida a stronger storm.

On This Green Earth, Dr. Jason Evans, Executive Director of the Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience and Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Studies at Stetson University, comes on the show to speak with Nell and Chris about the powerful storm. He will discuss its origin, intensity, and path of destruction.
