EXTREME WEATHER: USA, TORNADOS AND TYPHOONS
An episode from the series EARTH ON EDGE
For the last decade, the United States have been more and more heavily affected by extreme events. October 2012: Sandy hurricane has hit the east coast of the country, and paralyzed the city of New York for nearly eight days. No less than 131 people lost their lives after the hurricane... Six months later, the little town of Moore, Oklahoma is destroyed by two tornadoes within ten days. Result: 24 dead and an entire town wiped off the map... These extreme events are no longer exceptional. America refused to sign the Kyoto and Copenhagen protocols. But can this country still turn a deaf ear to this new war?
