Climate Change:

AMS's Anthony Socci explains some of the near-term effects of global warming

From increasingly acidic oceans to melting snowpack, researchers have identified several major trends related to climate change. Anthony Socci, senior fellow at the American Meteorological Society, explains the growing body of research on the effects of global warming, including whether warmer oceans are linked to stronger hurricanes. Socci also discusses the outlook for further federal research on climate change, and where he thinks government efforts should be headed.
