Storm Warnings: Climate Change and Extreme Weather

If catastrophes like Hurricane Sandy seem to be on the rise, it’s for apparent reason. The likelihood of these extreme weather events are increasingly being tied to manmade global warming, mostly through overproduction of carbon dioxide. It’s no longer an abstract idea; it’s being felt locally, on every level. This eBook, Climate Change and Extreme Weather, gives you the tools to better understand what’s behind climate change, what might be in store during the coming decades and how we can begin to reverse the detrimental effects mankind has had on the atmosphere.
