Experts are once again warning about the clear and present danger of climate change — after deadly storms ripped through parts of the U-S, killing dozens.
Multiple tornadoes touched down in several states across the Midwest and Southeast in a span of less than twenty-four hours.
Images of widespread destruction and a death toll that continues to climb have left local communities reeling.

Throughout the year, we’ve seen this again and again. Record-breaking heat, deadly forest fires, unprecedented rain, and persistent drought.
Thousands dead and billions of dollars lost.
Are we past the tipping point?
