In this video from NOVA: Killer Typhoon, scientists explore the link between increased storm intensity and climate change. Learn how warming oceans and melting glaciers contribute to the power and devastation potential of typhoon-related storms. Coastal communities, such as those in the Philippines hit by deadly Super Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013, will face an even greater risk from storms with heightened intensity.
