Is the weather actually becoming more extreme?
From 2016 to 2019, the world saw record-breaking heat waves, rampant wildfires, and the longest run of category 5 tropical cyclones on record.

So, is the increase in extreme weather due to random chance, or changing climate? R. Saravanan investigates. [Directed by Hype CG, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Gabriel Maia].
