Is the “heat dome” in British Columbia a sign of the summers to come? – .


In today’s Big Story podcast, first of all, what is a heated dome? Is it rare? How deadly? Are the unprecedented high temperatures the Pacific Northwest has experienced this week an anomaly or a terrifying glimpse of the new normal?

Can we attribute all of this to a warming climate? Or is it partly an unlucky combination of weather systems? And if this is a sign of things to come, what should Canadians and governments across the country do to prepare for the summers to come?

GUEST: Katharine Hayhoe, climatologist
