Studies suggest an increase in tornado swarms and possible shifts in storm tracks, but what about global warming connections? Here’s what scientists had to say.
It’s a question that has come up a lot this tornado season: Since global warming can make other types of extreme weather more likely, could it be behind these deadly twisters?
We asked some of the leading scientists who have been studying tornadoes and the physics of extreme weather and climate change to share their insights.
