Summary
Is the world's weather growing more extreme? This program joins hurricane chasers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and discovers that over the last decade, these storms have been getting more powerful. MIT atmospheric scientist Kerry Emanuel warns that the new "black swan hurricanes," storms of unusual and unexpected ferocity, could hit places in the world that haven't been slammed by hurricanes in recorded history - and that merely forecasting the weather may no longer be enough
