“Extreme weather events are increasing due to climate change, and they affect every American in many ways, from our safety to our finances. Spanning from the flooding rains of hurricanes in North Carolina to wildfires in California, with many other events in between and beyond, every voter experiences the effects of weather. We look forward to showing viewers how the presidential candidates aim to address this critical issue,” said Rick Knabb, The Weather Channel’s hurricane expert.

The special follows two other major network events focused on climate change and the election.

CNN hosted a seven-hour special featuring interviews with candidates, and MSNBC hosted a two-day event sitting down with candidates for an hour each.
