The Weather Makers - How We Are Changing the Planet and What it Means for Life on Earth

Tim Flannery

From Dr. Tim Flannery, one of the world's foremost experts on conservation and ecology, comes a book of immeasurable importance. Hailed by Kirkus Reviews as a "powerful and persuasive" work that is "sure to provoke strong reaction," The Weather Makers is among the finest examinations of climate change ever written. Originally skeptical of global warming, Flannery spent years compiling his own research. What he learned is sobering. Human beings are weather makers whose production of carbon dioxide is polluting the planet at a devastating rate. Species are disappearing, the natural world is changing, and weather events, like Hurricane Katrina, are becoming increasingly disastrous. But as Flannery shows, there are cleaner ways to live-and doing so is the only way to avoid global catastrophe. Alarming but filled with ideas that inspire hope, The Weather Makers could be the most important book you ever read. "At last, here is a clear and readable account of one of the most important but controversial issues facing everyone in the world today.
