FEATURED CLIMATE COVERAGE
David Boraks' climate special
WFAE climate reporter David Boraks hosts this one-hour special report that examines how climate change affects the Carolinas and how we're responding. We hear from scientists, farmers, policymakers and other experts, as well as from activists concerned with the inequities of climate change.
alpitronic, an Italian company that makes ultra-fast electric-vehicle charging stations, says it will locate its U.S. headquarters and service center in Charlotte and create 300 jobs.

Human actions have caused "significant declines" in the amount of water stored in 53% of the planet's largest lakes and reservoirs. Climate change and overconsumption are the primary drivers.
Tuesday's temperature hit the upper 80s and low 90s across the Carolinas, giving us a preview of things to come this spring and summer. As average global temperatures rise with climate change, so do the number of dangerously high heat days. And with that comes health risks, especially for those with health problems and people who work outdoors or in hot environments.
Atom Power, which makes electric vehicle charging equipment, is planning a $4.2 million expansion of its Huntersville headquarters that will create 205 jobs.
