  • "Sometime this century the day will arrive when the human influence on the climate will overwhelm all other natural factors. Over the past decade, the world has seen the most powerful El Nino ever recorded, the most devastating hurricane in two hundred years, the hottest European summer on record, and one of the worst storm seasons ever experienced in Florida. With one out of 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. [This book] 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 cataclysmic future. Along with a riveting history of climate change, [the author] 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. --Book cover."@en
  • "Sie dachten, der liebe Gott macht das Wetter? Dann lesen Sie dieses Buch! Verheerende Hurrikans, Frühlingswetter im November, schmelzende Gletscher, verdorrende Felder: Was wir als "Klimawandel" oder "Treibhauseffekt" kennen, nimmt immer schärfere, immer bedrohlichere Züge an - auch direkt vor unserer Haustür. Tim Flannery zeigt uns eindrucksvoll, wie dramatisch die Lage wirklich ist: Wir müssen auf der Stelle handeln, um diese Entwicklung noch umzudrehen. Denn die Wettermacher, das sind wir! "Ein herausragendes Buch: spannend, großartig geschrieben, leidenschaftlich. Es liefert alles notwendige Wissen, um handeln zu können, bevor es zu spät ist." Redmond O'Hanlon, Autor und Reiseschriftsteller."

  • ""What does climate change mean? How will global warming affect our lives in the future? Is it the cause of wilder storms and more frequent drought? Are these events inevitable? Tim Flannery tells the fascinating story of climate change over millions of years to help us understand the predicament we face. By burning fossil fuels we are increasing the levels of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, causing our planet to become warmer. Every nation is differently affected by these changes but we have one thing in common - we are now the weather makers, and the new climate we are creating threatens the future of our civilisation. Tim Flannery shows how we can all help to combat these problems."--Provided by publisher."@en
  • "Climate change is real, and it will affect all of us. From desertification to rising ocean levels, from killer storms to wildlife extinction, we're already seeing the effects of human activity on the most sensitive part of the global ecosystem. In this extraordinary book, Tim Flannery not only describes the problem of global warming and climate change, he suggests in detail how the world can act to solve it. More than just a #1 bestseller across Canada, The Weather Makers is an international publishing phenomenon that has won praise from critics, scientists and world leaders, including British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Australian Prime Minister John Howard. Flannery's clear explanations and practical suggestions bring an issue of monumental scope and importance down to the individual level, making us aware of how everyday activities contribute to climate change and what we can do, personally and collectively, to work against this urgent crisis."@en
