For drought-stricken regions of the world such as India, Australia, West Africa, and the American Southwest, the monsoon rainfall is a welcome gift. But as climate change worsens, the amount of rain may increase, and the actual rainstorms may become less frequent and more severe, leading to less water retention, damage, and even casualties. This week, The Sweaty Penguin explores what monsoons are, how climate change affects them, and what we could do to adapt moving forward. With special guest Dr. Michela Biasutti: Lamont Associate Research Professor of Ocean and Climate Physics at Columbia University.
