Bryan and Luke talk with Dr. Kerry Emanuel, meteorology professor and climate scientist at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts about how climate science has evolved, and his work to understand how hurricanes will behave in a warmer world. Is global warming already affecting hurricanes? Also, learn about his groundbreaking work to determine how strong a given hurricane could get – called the Maximum Potential Intensity. What are the challenges of conveying risk, and why that’s so important in hurricane forecasting. It’s a wide-ranging discussion about hurricanes, climate change, policy, and much more.
