As Lester R Brown Bill McKibben Richard Heinberg Fred Pearce Elizabeth Kolbert and John Michael GreerOf Course Michael GreerOf course Australian Tim Flannery is also on this list Like Bill McKibben Flannery s writings span a wide range of subjects His Wiki article describes him as a mammalogist palaeontologist environmentalist and lobal warming activist and notes that he was named the 2007 Australian of the YearThe Weather Makers is one of Flannery s most influential books and although the story of climate change is moving fast the book at seven years of age is probably still worth reading There is a reat breadth of material covered from descriptions of the earth s atmosphere and ecosystems to the physicalchemical mechanics descriptions of the earth s atmosphere and ecosystems to the physicalchemical mechanics reenhouse X-Men Visionaries: Neal Adams gases climate modelling and the sorts of outcomes that can be imagined The index is prettyood and the notes to each of the 35 chapters should allow an interested reader to track down up to date data and research on most of the topicsIn fact as I ve been looking at it in writing this review it occurs to me that perhaps I should reread parts of it This book is excellent and terrifying Tim Flannery is a working Australian scientist mammologist paleontologist not a journalist who lays out the history and science of climate change likely scenarios for the future the politics of climate change both The Complete MAUS good and bad and at the very end provides a manifesto for ways to reduce our carbon output individually The species he studies have been deeply impacted by climate changes to date which means thatlobal warming is not just something he decided to write a book about but has been interested in for years and that depth of interest is evident in the depth of evidence in the bookWhen I think of climate change I think of many things but most of them are in the past 10 years the hurricane season of 2005 the 8 of the 10 warmest years of the millennium are in the past decade ice shelf breakups in the polar regions and so on Flannery cites evidence that we ve been seeing impacts for much longer in human terms ranging from the drying of the Sahel starting in the 1960 s the extinction of frogs and other amphibians in the 1980 s and the scary part is that human The History of EC Comics greenhouseas emissions have risen dramatically since those impacts startedSo as not to make the book a complete downer Flannery finishes with both a hopeful note the story of the Montreal Protocol to ban CFCs which caused the ozone hole and how that seemed so hopeless in the early 1980 s but actually came about and is now having a positive impact and an action list for individuals to reduce their carbon impact I think I am less hopeful than he as regards our ability to pull off such a large scale change in our behavior but it s an important aspect of the book to make it not all doom and ¡Trágate ese sapo! 21 estrategias para TRIUNFAR combatiendo la procrastinación gloomAlas this book is best written for people who believe at some level that humans are responsible for climate change If you think that climate change is a hoax perpetuated by the liberal media and a scientist s conspiracy well this book is full of scientific citations Of course I don t think anything will convince the denialists until their houseoes underwater for Créer Sa Propre BD: Guide + 100 Planches Vierges (pages avec des cases vides): la Recette pour Créer une Histoire… good As someone who studies climate policy inrad school I found The Weather Makers to be by far the most comprehensive book I ve read on climate change In a brisk 300 pages Tim Flannery spans the ecology of climate change and its devastating effects on biodiversity its eological context and how this is different than previous ages the atmospheric models that inform our understanding of its impacts the history of international climate negotiations and the pros and cons of alternatives to fossil fuels This impressive scope has both positive and negative aspects On the one hand I can t think of a better single book for someone to uickly et up to speed on climate change Flannery truly tells a story with each chapter of the book and manages to combine engaging writing with in depth detail in many sections On the other hand such a broad range in a short 300 pages is bound to not cover all subjects in eual depth While Flannery provides a lot of rich detail on how climate change is affecting both terrestrial and marine life he is an ecologist by training in the first 100 150 pages his sections on energy technologies and policy are fairly thin For example he introduces and summarily dismisses carbon capture and storage as one option to reduce emissions in all of 2 pages regardless of your opinion on the technology it surely merits a closer look However this book can at least provide some overall big picture context to help situate where specific news articles or books fitOverall this was a very informative book and fun to read Highly recommended for anyone who wishes to learn about climate change and the imperative to act now scary and important reading. Ataclysmic future Along with a riveting history of climate change Tim Flannery offers specific suggestions for action for both lawmakers and individuals from investing in renewable power sources like wind solar and eothermal energy to offering an action plan with steps each and every one of us can take right now to reduce deadly CO2 emissions by as much as 70 percent. S important Once aware awake and CONCERNED THEN YOU CAN FIND OTHER then you can find other that marshal scientific evidence carefully and comprehensively if you still have uestions about how bad lobal warming could become and what catastrophic effects it will have or which ive you a wider set of recommendations as to what you can do personally or what needs to be done collectively if you are ready to take action but you need to wake up to the danger first So read this book and if it works for you then recommend it further to several friends who should recommend it further to various of their friends and so ON THERE MAY BE BETTER REASONS TO START A There may be better reasons to start a letter than waking up to the risks of lobal warming but if so I don t know what they might beNote this review is for the 2005 edition which has apparently been reissued and updated extensively in 2010 I ll post a review for the updated version once I ve read it There s also a young adult edition of this book that was published in 2010 Excellent book about the hows whys and what ifs of climate change Some of the data is a little outdated at this point but it still provides a solid argument with reat supporting evidence The science in this book is accessible to a wide variety of readers including both those new to the concept of climate change and those who are well versed in the topic This book should be considered a climate change classic it excellently elaborate the science behind the climate regulating functions of the Earth s atmosphere the delicate balance of it and how human s thirst for rowth is threatening to destroy that balance with catastrophic conseuences The book covers many facets of the issue from the science to the politics which makes it a one stop shop for all things climate change Flannery s writing is beautiful and lucid it is infused with a romanticism for all things nature similarly to what one would find in the works of eighteenth century botanists and biologists he uotes a lot of Wallace His prose has a literary uality to it particularly as he ascribed the atmosphere as The Great Aerial Ocean and the life blood of Earth All this makes for a One Piece - Blue great page turner unexpected for a book packed with so much scientific details Considering that this has been published in 2005 it is pretty ahead in voicing the concerns later adopted by the likes of the IPCC report in 2007 and the Stern review All that delivered in bits and chunks that are digestible to the average reader Some of the details are outright fascinating the many layers of the atmosphere the kinetic uality of its interaction with all living being on earth and the delicate balance at which its climate regulating functions hinges Flannery also managed to deconstruct the cliches surrounding climate change and has brilliantly explained the sources of uncertainty in climate modeling Having said that it does have some clear pitfalls Its ambitious scope makes it difficult for Flannery to cover the aspects outside his strength as a scientist such as the economics and politics of it inreat depth In fact towards the end of the book I felt there was a lot of redundancy regarding his take on the Gribouillages: Livre De Coloriage Pour Adultes global politics of emission reduction efforts and particularly his ideas of a post Kyoto Protocol deal The alarmist tone to the last few chapters can also be off putting Flannery himself conceded to the uncertainty of the science yet he is trapped into heralding various catastrophic projections of 2050 as the world s certain future The book really dragged towards the end because of the author repeatedly stopped in his tracks to remind readers that time is running out and that action needs to be taken Even a believer like me does not respond too well on too much climate crusading Finally a minor but annoying bit has to be the finality with which he starts his last few chapters which really makes it feel like the book was neveroing to end Chapters titled with Last Steps on the Stairway to Heaven The Last Act of God Time s Up made it seem like I had arrived at the end of the book yet when upon finishing them I was dismayed to find that there were chapters to Haderer Jahrbuch: Nr. 12 go through what another chapter But still this book comes recommended to anyone who wants toet a better The Art of Kung Fu Panda 3 grasp at the issue Even in the current flood of information on climate change any reader would find the book highly insightful as well as enjoyable Humanity is at or has already passed an historical crossroads By the end of the 21st century possibly by the middle of it enormous changes in the earth s climate and ecosystems will have precipitated eually momentous changes in human society our economic systems and in civilization itselfMy personal list of writers who have made significant contributions to the scientific environmental and societal aspects of what we are heading for include people such. Every five living things on this planet committed to extinction by the levels ofreenhouse ases that will accumulate in the next few decades we are reaching a lobal climatic tipping point The Weather Makers is both an urgent warning and a call to arms outlining the history of climate change how it will unfold over the next century and what we can do to prevent a ,
