9780151012879: Storm World: 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 global meteorology and weather forecasting: whether the increasing ferocity and frequency of hurricanes are connected to global warming. In the wake of Katrina, Mooney follows the lives and careers of the two leading scientists on either side of the debate through the 2006 hurricane season, tracing how government, the media, big business, and politics influence the ways in which weather patterns are predicted, charted, and even defined.Mooney written a fascinating and urgently compelling book that calls into question the great inconvenient truth of our day: Are we responsible for making hurricanes even bigger monsters than they already are?
