The Weather Makers: How Man Is Changing the Climate and What It Means for Life on Earth
by Tim Flannery, a review from Washington Post Book World by Thomas Hayden.
"Three new books on global warming should provide beachgoers with plenty of responses to the question they will likely hear all summer: Hot enough for you? The short answer, according to Elizabeth Kolbert, Eugene Linden and Tim Flannery, is definitely yes. These authors ? two magazine journalists and a biologist ? explore many of the same branches in the tangled thicket of climate history, science and policy. Each takes a different approach to sorting through the foliage, but all arrive at largely the same conclusion: The Earth is warming, we're causing it, and that is not at all a good thing."
