Book Excerpt :

A Change in the Weather follows the Russell family during the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of the polar ice cap, from March 2028 through May 2029. The Arctic has inverted from heat reflector to heat sink, and the jet stream has broken from its age-old trajectory to whip the globe like an unattended fire hose. Rainfall patterns shift seasons, location, and intensity the world over. Agriculture fails. The international economy collapses. Terrorism surges. In the ensuing panic, the United States embraces President Roland Strauch, a Biblical literalist who heads the American Homeland Party and its armed militia, the Order of the Eagle and Cross. Each member of the Russell family does what he or she thinks is right in an America where democracy and Christianity struggle to survive. What each thinks is right couldn't be more different. "Ray intertwines key dynamics of the global environment and American society to explore how individuals and families will be forced to respond to intersecting global crises. This is a heck of a story with a large cast of compelling characters." - Charles Hugh Smith, author/blogger, Of Two Minds "Earth's climate is unstable, and we are pushing it hard towards a sudden shift to a new state by pumping huge quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A radical shift in the climate between the years 2018-2028 as envisioned by Welch is entirely plausible." - Dr. Jeff Masters, Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground "We are already seeing (as predicted) outsized warming of the Arctic compared to other parts of the globe. There is growing evidence that we are already seeing weather patterns being influenced by loss of Arctic sea ice." - Dr. Mark Serreze, Director, National Snow and Ice Data Center, U. of Colorado at Boulder "Ray has worked in the energy business for years and knows it inside out." - Chris Rafael, Editor, California Energy Markets "A Change in the Weather is a well-written and disturbing page-turner.

Book Short Summary:

This volume outlines the specific conditions and responses to climate change in India. It discusses various aspects of the planetary crisis that have acquired widespread global urgency: global warming induced by anthropogenic emissions, largely owing to the fossil fuel-based economic growth model; severe environmental decline; and the catastrophic consequences that threaten the very foundations of modern life, which has been based on using nature as a ‘resource’ instead of as an ecosystem in which human life exists. The book brings together contributors with expertise in fi elds as varied as national security, public policy, environmental law, climate justice activism, anthropology, restoration ecology, conservation biology, wildlife ecology, the health sector and medicine, conservation science and sustainability, gender, humanities and the creative arts. It includes a new spectrum of responses—holistic or alternate, literary and the arts, dance and poetry—and their interface with climate change, which are often left out in science and policy circles, and an unusual ground-up approach with grassroots movements’ perspectives along with theoretical practices and a Gandhian way of thinking in a global economy. Comprehensive, accessible and topical, this book will be useful to scholars and researchers of environmental and sustainability studies, natural resources, environment and technology, sociology of development, development studies, public policy, energy and environment and urbanisation. It will also interest practitioners, policymakers, think tanks and NGOs working on climate change issues.

Book Short Summary:

The #1 international bestseller on climate change that’s been endorsed by policy makers, scientists, writers and energy executives around the world. Tim Flannery’s The Weather Makers contributed in bringing the topic of global warming to worldwide prominence. For the first time, a scientist provided an accessible and comprehensive account of the history, current status, and future impact of climate change, writing what has been acclaimed by reviewers everywhere as the definitive book on global warming. 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. 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 cataclysmic future. Originally somewhat of a global warming skeptic, Tim Flannery spent several years researching the topic and offers a connect-the-dots approach for a reading public who has received patchy or misleading information on the subject. Pulling on his expertise as a scientist to discuss climate change from a historical perspective, Flannery also explains how climate change is interconnected across the planet. This edition includes a new afterword by the author. “An authoritative, scientifically accurate book on global warming that sparkles with life, clarity, and intelligence.” —The Washington Post

Book Short Summary:

From the acclaimed author of Tubes, a lively and surprising tour through the global network that predicts our weather, the people behind it, and what it reveals about our climate and our planet The weather is the foundation of our daily lives. It’s a staple of small talk, the app on our smartphones, and often the first thing we check each morning. Yet, behind all these humble interactions is the largest and most elaborate piece of infrastructure human beings have ever constructed—a triumph of both science and global cooperation. But what is the weather machine, and who created it? In The Weather Machine, Andrew Blum takes readers on a fascinating journey through the people, places, and tools of forecasting, exploring how the weather went from something we simply observed to something we could actually predict. As he travels across the planet, he visits some of the oldest and most important weather stations and watches the newest satellites blast off. He explores the dogged efforts of forecasters to create a supercomputer model of the atmosphere, while trying to grasp the ongoing relevance of TV weather forecasters. In the increasingly unpredictable world of climate change, correctly understanding the weather is vital. Written with the sharp wit and infectious curiosity Andrew Blum is known for, The Weather Machine pulls back the curtain on a universal part of our everyday lives, illuminating our changing relationships with technology, the planet, and our global community.

Book Short Summary:

When his parents tell him that they’re splitting up and his dad leaves home, a ten-year-old boy begs the sky to help him. The next day, a storm covers Montreal in a deep layer of ice. As the power goes out across the city and the temperature drops, people must help each other in order to survive. The boy is convinced that it’s all his fault. But at least one neighbourhood will never be the same. Julie, the exotic dancer who lives across the street, helps Boris, an eccentric Russian mathematician, save his fish from the cold weather. And the urbane Michel and Simon open their door to Alexis, their homophobic neighbour, and his son. Three days in the frozen city will turn their lives upside down—but will the ice storm bring the boy’s parents back together? Sparklingly funny, wise and joyful, Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather reminds us that life is full of the unexpected, and that happy endings might still be possible. Praise for Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather "If it's possible to romp through a natural disaster, Pierre Szalowski does just that. Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather offers a giddy, open-hearted look at the 1998 Ice Storm we might all wish we’d lived through." - Trevor Cole, author of Practical Jean "A little boy looks out the window of his Montreal apartment and prays for a natural disaster to prevent his parents from divorcing. That is how this magical novel begins. During the course of Pierre Szalowski’s ice storm, the lives of the tenants in a building are turned on their heads. They invite strangers into their homes, discover incredible secrets, solve scientific enigmas and fall in love. Leave it to Pierre Szalowski to use a natural disaster as a setting to examine what it means to be openhearted, happy and Quebecoise. It is an exquisite snow globe of a book. Pick it up, turn it upside down and watch the storm begin to fall on Montreal all over again." - Heather O'Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals

Book Short Summary:

The New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Safran Foer re-evaluated his meat-based diet--and his conscience--in his powerful memoir and investigative report, Eating Animals. Now, he offers a mind-bending and potentially world-changing call to action on climate change. Most books about the environmental crisis are densely academic, depressingly doom-laden, and crammed with impersonal statistics. We Are the Weather is different--accessible, immediate, and with a single clear solution that individual readers can put into practice straight away. A significant proportion of global carbon emissions come from farming meat. Giving up meat is incredibly hard and nobody is perfect--but just cutting back is much easier and still has a huge positive effect on the environment. Just changing our dinners--cutting out meat for one meal per day--is enough to change the world. With his distinctive wit, insight, and humanity, Foer frames this essential debate as no one else could, bringing it to vivid and urgent life.
