"Beautifully illustrated ... Think of this book like dining on tapas, boasting savory flavors, some unexpected, that constitute a satisfying whole." -- Washington Post Andrew Revkin, who is the senior climate reporter at ProPublica after a prize-winning 21-year stint at The New York Times , presents an intriguing illustrated history of humanity's evolving relationship with Earth's dynamic climate system and the wondrous weather it generates. Colorful and captivating, Weather : An Illustrated History hopscotches through 100 meteorological milestones and insights, from prehistory to today's headlines and tomorrow's forecasts. Bite-sized narratives, accompanied by exciting illustrations, touch on such varied topics as Earth's first atmosphere, the physics of rainbows, the deadliest hailstorm, Groundhog Day, the invention of air conditioning, London's Great Smog, the Year Without Summer, our increasingly strong hurricanes, and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Written by a prominent and award-winning environmental author and journalist, this is a groundbreaking illustrated book that traces the evolution of weather forecasting and climate science.
