More than 50 people died in a Quebec heat wave earlier this month. It feels like it's hot everywhere this summer. Record global temperatures and frequent natural disasters have left cities scrambling to keep their most vulnerable citizens safe, in Canada and around the world. Scientists have a ton of data showing that rising temperatures and heightened natural disasters are a direct result of climate change. So why aren't we accepting the evidence? Is there a chance the weather we’re seeing in Canada and around the world this year is a climate coincidence, or is this just the new normal? If so, what can we actually do? David Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada, has some answers.
