Climate Change Is Impacting Every Aspect of Modern Life

July is slated to become the hottest month in recorded history, as extreme weather fueled by climate change wreaks havoc across the globe, from extreme heatwaves in Europe and the U.S. to deadly monsoon flooding in South Asia.

Severe rains have killed at least 660 people across India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan in a monsoon that is expected to continue throughout the week. A record heat wave is hitting Europe for the second time this summer, with Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam all at risk of hitting all-time high temperatures, and Spain facing the threat of severe fires.

Democracy Now! speaks with climate scientist Michael Mann, a distinguished professor and director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University, about the latest weather extremes across the globe and how the media can responsibly cover climate change.
