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 hear. Download and start listening now!

    " An accessible account of global weather and how this will be affected by climate change. Based on science rather than opinion this book is depressing to certain degree given the scale of the issues raised however it does provide ways for everyone to reduce their carbon footprint and thus their contributions to climate change. Flannery even goes on to discuss the success of the global CFC ban and how this success can be used as a template through which the global community can tackle climate change together. The bottom line of this book is that yes climate change is a huge issue but as a global society we are in a better position to tackle it than ever before "

    " Very educational, yet entertaining at the same time. Each chapter is geared toward a specific topic, from mountains to coral reefs to the golden toad. Whether your a cynic or an advocate of climate change, this book showed me that everybody's life will be affected in one way or another. "

    " At times I found this difficult to read as it is rather scientific. However it was eye-opening and educational. "
