Ira Flatow on Science: More Hurricanes Coming?

In this radio broadcast, commentators discuss the remainder of the 2005 hurricane season in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which was being called one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history. Topics include how hurricanes form in Africa; how warmer than average water and lighter winds create ideal hurricane conditions; how global warming may be contributing to more frequent and intense hurricanes; and why there has been an increase in hurricane activity since 1995. The clip is 3 minutes and 37 seconds in length.
