Hurricanes, Politics, and the Battle Over Global Warming
One of the leading environmental journalists and bloggers working today, Chris Mooney delves into a red-hot debate in this examination of hurricane science and the politics and culture wars surrounding it. He asks: is the ferocity and frequency of hurricanes connected to global warming?
Following the two leading scientists on either side of the debate, Mooney traces how government, the media, Big Business and politics influence the ways in which weather patterns are predicted, charted and even defined. Storm World is an urgently compelling look at the issues at the intersection of science and politics.
