Is climate change making hurricanes worse?

Watch more with these video collections:

“So the important thing to understand about hurricanes is that they only form over warm water. Think of warm water as a fuel to the engine that is a hurricane. The hurricane forms when warm air over the ocean rises. As that warm air rises, cool air sort of fills in below it, kind of creating that cyclonic action. At the top it forms clouds, and those clouds create the rain system that we associate with hurricanes.”
