Angry Weather: Heat Waves, Floods, Storms, and the New Science of Climate Change

Angry Weather: Heat Waves, Floods, Storms, and the New Science of Climate Change - Friederike Otto

Angry Weather: Heat Waves, Floods, Storms, and the New Science of Climate Change


"Meet the forensic scientists of climate change; if you like CSI, you'll be equally enthralled with the skill and speed these folks exhibit. But the stakes are infinitely higher "-Bill McKibben, author of Falter and The End of Nature

Massive fires, widespread floods, Category 4 hurricanes--shocking weather disasters dominate news headlines every year, but not everyone agrees on what causes them. In this gripping nonfiction book, renowned scientist Friederike Otto provides an answer with attribution science, a revolutionary method for pinpointing the role of climate change in extreme weather events.

Angry Weather tells the compelling, day-by-day story of Hurricane Harvey, which caused over a hundred deaths and $125 billion in damage in 2017. As the hurricane unfolds, Otto reveals how attribution science works in real time, and determines that Harvey's terrifying floods were three times more likely to occur due to human-induced climate change.

This new ability to determine climate change's role in extreme weather events has the potential to dramatically transform society--for individuals, who can see how climate change affects their loved ones, and corporations and governments, who may see themselves held accountable in the courts. Otto's research laid out in this groundbreaking book will have profound impacts, both today and for the future of humankind.

Published in Partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.


From a leading scientist, this gripping nonfiction book explains how recent weather disasters--including heat waves, massive forest fires, and floods--can be definitively linked to climate change, through the revolutionary method of World Weather Attribution.
