While the science linking climate change and hurricane activity continues to evolve, one scientist says we have more than enough information to warrant action. We speak with Kerry Emanuel, the Cecil & Ida Green Professor of Atmospheric Science and Co-Director of the Lorenz Center for climate science at MIT.
