Read á PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ê Tim Flannery The Weather MakersHow Man is Changing the Climate and What it Means for Life on Earth Review ¿ 102 Tim Flannery Ê 2 Summary 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 geothermal 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. As someone who studies climate policy in grad 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 geological 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 get 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

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 growth 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 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 in great depth In fact towards the end of the book I felt there was a lot of redundancy regarding his take on the 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 never going to end Chapters titled

Read á PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ê Tim Flannery The Weather MakersHow Man is Changing the Climate and What it Means for Life on Earth Review ¿ 102 Tim Flannery Ê 2 Summary Every five living things on this planet committed to extinction by the levels of greenhouse gases that will accumulate in the next few decades we are reaching a global 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 c. 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 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 that global 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 greenhouse gas 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 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 house goes underwater for good
