Over the last 20 years, extreme weather researchers and NASA experts have noted hurricanes are getting stronger, and intense flooding is impacting an additional 24% of the globe.

The Environmental Protection Agency also reports that the average amount of land consumed by wildfires has increased since the 1980s. Experts blame climate change for this increase.

Some people concerned about climate change gather at Climate Café for a cup of coffee and a discussion about solutions for the crisis.

On today’s “Closer Look,” host Rose Scott spoke to Climate Café founder and director Jess Pepper and Denise Cheeseman, the City of Savannah’s sustainability project manager.
