    This would make a good introductory book for middle school to high school aged children It hits all the wavetops of our understanding of the issue pretty wellThe weakness comes in the solutions offered after every chapter Most action items are just feel good things you can change rather than something that would actually help One suggestion to reducing your oil consumption is to buy shampoo that contains no petrochemicals Seriously? Unless you have the haircare needs of Rapunzel holding in a fart probably does for the planetFlannery completely fails to mention some of the most alarming problems looming on the horizon such as developing countries with enormous populations exploding into modernity with little to no concern for the environment or the massively nasty pollution from cargo and cruise shipsHe also omits the single largest thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint have one fewer child Having a single child will end up pumping carbon into the air than 120 people switching to a hybrid Environmental Research Letters Seth Wynes 2017 Do authors just not mention this because it would be controversial? Books that provide life advice on reducing your carbon footprint need to provide actual solutions instead of all of these feel good actions if they want to affect any sort of change If not they are just asking you to mop the streets in the rain

    ‘We Are The Weather Makers’ is an inspiring and breathtaking novel from the perspective of the Author Tim Flannery who in the book describes the detriment of the warming of our planet to our world as one what is causing it and how to prevent it Starting out with how the carbon cycle works and how to learn to offset your carbon footprint to sustainable energy sources such as the sun and wind power this book covers it all Starting with an introduction to what climate change is the book touches bases on animal extinction melting ice caps glaciers and icebergs CO2 emissions polluted atmosphere corrupted oceans deadly greenhouse gases natural disasters rising waters and the possible end of civilization The book is wordy but very informative of the effect of global warming We Are The Weather Makers is a perfect book for the upper class of highschool learning about climate change and really any age above as for younger children it may appear lengthy and hard to read as it drags on and has a total amount of 254 pages This book has the ability to remind you that global warming is a real thing and can change someone's view of the world's global crisis whether they are nature lovers or not Definitely recommend for anyone doing a projecttask on global warming


  4. Ian Banks Ian Banks says:

    Flannery cops a lot of flak from the climate change denial crowd because he makes predictions some of which haven’t come true However in broad terms he gets a lot of stuff right This book an edition for younger readers of his earlier The Weather Makers paints a stark and vivid portrait of our world in just a few decades if nothing is done What’s worse is that even if we do everything we will still have the terrible future he portrays because just as the effects have of climate change have taken decades or centuries to become obvious the repairing of it will take a similar length of time Despite being over a decade old though this is still a helpful book in terms of what people can do and how they can have an impact

    This book gave me a really good foundation for how climate change works the basic science of what is causing climate change what has already been lost and what will be and some arguments on what we can do to stop it I have been increasingly engaging with the climate conversation over the past year but often I feel like I don't have a good understanding of the basics I'm aware of the issues with the dominance of the voices of white men in the climate space and I'll definitely try to read diversely about climate in future but I still think this book is really valuable in just providing the basic facts It's crazy that this book was published 14 years ago and had a sense of urgency even then given that I feel like very little has changed since


  6. Kathleen Kathleen says:

    I thought it was a really good book to learn about the weather It reminded me that global warming is a real thing and we need to make sure we are watching how fast the world is heating up This book would also be a good book if you are doing a project about global warming


  7. Amelia Amelia says:

    this book is even scarier as it was written like 12 years ago so everything is now worse lol


  8. Kyle Horne Kyle Horne says:

    Broke down most of the science in easy to understand explanations Each chapter had a tips you can do to be Eco friendly and the last part of the book had examples from schools and businesses


  9. Henrik Haapala Henrik Haapala says:

    Excellent overall and 25 practical ways to reduce co2 emissions


  10. Sam Dean Sam Dean says:

    This book made entirely from recycled paper offers loads of facts information about global warming and climate change and how we can be part of the solution Tim Flannery's book dives deep into global pollution issues and includes a clear explanation of the carbon cycle along with greenhouse gases on Earth and in the atmosphere It also offers a clear look at the history of climate change how matters will unfold over the next century and what we can do to prevent a catastrophic future for ourselves Also within there are descriptions of effects on a variety of different habitats and future suggestions about what to do to make our world healthier While providing this information the book also gives examples of practical tips for living a greener lifestyle while at home in school and most of all on Earth All this information goes against those who say that a few degrees change in temperature is no big deal but truth be told it is In my opinion this book is very helpful and allows the growth of the readers knowledge on the issues of climate change Another part that I liked was the fact that for every issue presented there was a solution given on how to fix the problem Also the amount of help this can give to a reader wanting to learn about climate change is immense Even though the book was kind of boring to read just going on page after page with a bunch of facts and statistics in your face I would still recommend it to anybody wanting to make a difference in the world or just to a simple student that needs a topic to write about for his or her English opinion essay
