How Does Climate Change Impact Summer Weather?
From the Pacific Northwest to parts of Europe, this summer has brought high — even record-breaking — temperatures. Extreme heat, which was once associated with places like Arizona, is affecting communities near and far.

We'll talk about the immediate and future impacts of climate change and its impact on communities in the Carolinas and elsewhere.
