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.

Alarming but filled with ideas that inspire hope, The Weather Makers could be the most important book you ever read. "At last, here is a clear and readable account of one of the most important but controversial issues facing everyone in the world today.
