On today's edition of AccuWeather LIVE, we covered hurricane updates, the climate change debate and discussed the potential impacts of the Colorado flooding on the area's tourism.

To kick-off the show, Justin Povick talked about our forecast and Marja Martinez went over the week's extreme weather video.

Jennifer Correa weighed-in with an update on hurricane activity in the tropics and Tropical Storm Karen's track.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Jim Dickey then covered the latest news on the climate change debate. Last Friday, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) Working Group 1 reported that it reinforces the idea of human-caused climate change. We sat down with one of the reports lead authors, Dr. Chris Forest, and learned more about how climate model projections are done.
