Today on Your Call: What is happening with the weather?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about changing weather patterns. We have had one of the warmest winters on record including an extended drought in parts of California. Last month was the warmest March on record since 1895, when records were first kept. What’s the link between extreme weather and climate change? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. Extreme weather events are already plaguing the country. What should we expect in the future? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
