Description


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.

Species are disappearing, the natural world is changing, and weather events, like Hurricane Katrina, are becoming increasingly disastrous.

"At last, here is a clear and readable account of one of the most important but controversial issues facing everyone in the world today.
