About this product
- Description* What has been the real impact of past weather extremes (e.g. cold winters, droughts, floods, heatwaves and hurricanes) on historic events? * Is the frequency and impact of weather extremes changing? * Can we predict how the climate will behave in the future and what will be the consequences of these changes? * Are greater, less predictable changes just around the corner? Bill Burroughs seeks to answer these questions by providing a balanced and accessible analysis of the current debate on climatic change. Combining a historical perspective, ecomic and political analysis, together with meteorological and climatological explanations of the impact of extreme weather events on all aspects of society, it provides a basis for interpreting what is kwn about climatic change and the ability to forecast future changes and their ecomic and political consequences. The book also includes extensive discussions on El Ni. It will be of interest to all those concerned with the future of human society.
