Synopsis

Tim Flannery's international bestseller The Weather Makers has sold over a million copies and influenced politicians, movie stars, even business leaders - after reading it, Sir Richard Branson pledged more than 3 billion dollars towards developing sustainable energy sources. We Are the Weather Makers is a concise and revised edition that will allow readers aged from nine to ninety to learn the real facts about the biggest question of our generation. Flannery takes us on a journey through history and around the globe, writing about hurricanes and droughts, coral reefs and polar bears, and wind energy and nuclear power. He shows us how, as we continue to heat the planet, humanity faces unprecedented dangers and challenges. We are the weather makers now.
