Book Review: The Weather of the Future

The Weather of the FutureThe Weather of the Future by Heidi Cullen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great concept — first half gives the science and the second half includes case studies of representative places and what their weather will look like in the future. I especially like Cullen’s storytelling style — a very easy read and not too impenetrable. Also like the way stories of future weather are told as though they have already happened; this is a style that makes it feel more real. Climate change is real and we’re living through it now. As she says: “Climate is what you expect; weather is what you get.” What we’re getting is more and more extreme, more and more often. As she points out, a warmer atmosphere can absorb and hold more water, leading to more cloudbursts a fewer gentle rains. Ah! So that’s why my garden is flatter and flatter every spring!
