About this title

Synopsis:

One of the leading science journalists and commentators working today, Chris Mooney delves into a red-hot debate in meteorology: whether the increasing ferocity of hurricanes is connected to global warming. In the wake of Katrina, Mooney follows the careers of leading scientists on either side of the argument through the 2006 hurricane season, tracing how the media, special interests, politics, and the weather itself have skewed and amplified what was already a fraught scientific debate. As Mooney puts it: "Scientists, like hurricanes, do extraordinary things at high wind speeds."

Mooney—a native of New Orleans—has 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?

From the Back Cover:

PRAISE FOR STORM WORLD
 
"Mooney chose to walk a minefield in attempting to assess a controversial and quickly evolving field in climate research. He not only succeeded in producing a fair and accurate description of the science, but produced a fascinating read as well."--Climatologist Michael Mann of RealClimate.org "Storm World is a gripping story about the controversy and strong personalities surrounding hurricanes and the issue of global warming, where scientists and politicians--and their often clashing agendas--collide."--Rick Anthes, President, American Meteorological Society and President, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research "Storm World is of unique importance to all with environmental interests, especially those who find themselves conflicted on one of the world’s most important issues: the significance of global warming, its potential impact on the environment, and in particular on the frequency and strength of destructive hurricanes."--Dr. Robert Simpson, former director of the National Hurricane Center, and Dr. Joanne Simpson, former President of the American Meteorological Society and recipient of a Carl-Gustaf Rossby Award.  PRAISE FOR THE REPUBLICAN WAR ON SCIENCE 
 
"Nothing short of a landmark in contemporary political reporting."?Salon.com "A well-researched, closely argued and amply referenced indictment of the right wing's assault on science and scientists . . . Thankfully, Mooney is both a wonk and a clear writer."?Scientific American
