Danger Season—what the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) calls the period between May and October when the United States and the Caribbean usually experience their worst climate impacts—came in hot in 2024. May marked the 12th consecutive month of record-high temperatures for the planet. June is on track to continue this streak. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts that much of the United States will see an extremely hot July.

Join UCS for a webinar next month to learn about our interactive tool to track Danger Season impacts on a daily basis, capturing and communicating the climate change connections, highlighting harm to vulnerable people, and talking about what we can do to build equitable resilience. We're also working with our colleagues at Climate Central to incorporate the real-time role of climate change in creating these extreme heat days in the United States.

Webinar: 'Danger Season' and the Role of Climate Change

Register for the webinar today.

With fossil-fuel pollution trapping heat and driving up global average temperatures, those warmer months are warmer than ever. And, in human history, I do mean ever. Higher ocean and air temperatures manifest in storms, heat, precipitation, drought and wildfires that can be more intense, more frequent, and/or longer lasting.

By capturing the connections between dangerous weather and climate change, we can help family, friends, and neighbors understand, prepare, and make personal and political choices. With this critical data in hand, we can all work together to slow down this runaway climate train with a fast, fair phaseout of fossil fuels and accountability for the fossil fuel companies whose deception and delay tactics played a huge role in getting us into this mess—and who continue to profit as people suffer.

Join us to hear from the minds behind our Danger Season tool and the data that powers it. Experts from UCS and Climate Central will share how and why we developed this tool and how you can use it to demand climate action.

Please register today and we hope to see you on July 16.
