The Weather Makers: The History and Future Impact of Climate Change

Author(s): Tim Flannery

Science

What does climate change mean? How will global warming affect our lives? Is it the cause of wilder storms and more frequent droughts? Are these events inevitable? Tim Flannery makes this urgent issue completely accessible. He tells the fascinating story of climate change over millions of years to help us understand the predicament we face. By burning fossil fuels we are increasing the levels of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, causing our planet to become warmer. Every nation is affected differently by these changes but we have one thing in common - we are now the weather makers, and the new climate we are creating threatens the future of our civilisation. Tim Flannery shows how we can all help to combat these problems. You may be surprised at how much you can do.
