Forecasters predict another sweltering summer. Are we ready?

The summer of 2023 saw skylines choked by Canadian wildfire smoke, coral cooked in hot tub-warm ocean water and a month straight of 110-degree Fahrenheit high temperatures in Phoenix.

Scientists say 2024 will likely bring another hotter-than-normal summer and, with it, the potential for more climate-driven disasters.

NPR’s Rebecca Hersher says forecasters predict an extremely active Atlantic Hurricane season.
