Read full description of the books The Weather Makers: How Man Is Changing the Climate and What It Means for Life on Earth:

Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, humans have become weather makers. As we fuel our activities, we create ozone-destroying chemicals and greenhouse gases that have altered global weather patterns and increased the potential for extreme weather events. Tim Flannery's The Weather Makers lays out not only a riveting history of how climate change has shaped our planet's evolution but a bracing scenario of catastrophes brewing in the future.
