Description

Good weather forecasts save lives, but scientists are worried that 5G transmissions could drown out frequencies measured by weather satellites, setting weather forecasts back decades.

Special thanks to Roger Saunders, Ph.D. from the UK Met Office; Peter Iannucci, Ph.D. from UT Austin; and Dan Billow, AMS from WESH-TV.

Hosted by: Hank Green
