Guest: Bruce Bekkar, Gynecologist, Board Member of the Climate Action Campaign. An unusually large swath of the United States is in the grips of a sweltering heat wave this week. Most of the lower 48 will see temperatures topping 90 degrees with 40 million people living in areas that will see temperatures over 100, according to the National Weather Service. Phew! As things get hotter around the globe, pregnant women and their babies are at greater risk.
