Title: The Weather of the Future
I know what you are thinking, "Oh brother! ANOTHER book about 'climate change' and 'global warming.'" And yes, this foremost climatologist does have a data-based vision for our near future that is as "scorching" as any other climate forecast I have read. But her voice contains no pessimism. In fact, she uses lots of prominent scientists' voices to remind us that a dire weather future is only one possible outcome, and that we have the power, right now, to affect that outcome.
Amidst all the facts and figures in this book - or perhaps because of them - she made me feel hopeful about the future, and she compelled me to make a change, a real one, that saved at least a tank of gas, and kept my money in the Berkshires. A win-win! That's the difference in this book, and that's why it is worth reading.
