For millennia, hurricanes have threatened the Eastern United States, the Caribbean, and parts of Latin America. But changes to global climate have serious consequences for the future. For example, rising sea-levels mean that storm surge from hurricanes will impact ever further inland. In episode three, specialists discuss why they believe that hurricanes will become less frequent but increasingly powerful. Insight and interviews from leading experts such as Nobel Prize-winning climatologist, Jean-Pascal Van Ypersele, explore the preparations needed to withstand a super storm. Part of the "Hurricane, the Anatomy" series.
