It's a hot one: The heat wave, climate change and usPlay
It's day two of an intense heat wave here in Greater Boston that could last through the weekend. What do we do about it -- in the short term to stay safe, and in the long-term to prepare for more and more of this?
WBUR's Miriam Wasser and meteorologist Danielle Noyes talk about the short- and long-term consequences of the climate crisis, from the heat wave we're in to the need for government action — at the state and federal level.
