Rated 5 out of 5 by from RECOMMENDATION FOR THE WEATHER MAKERS The Weather Makers was a very good informative book that talked about the climate at present and the challenges we face to save it. It also talks about what would happen if we didn’t act to save the environment that supports all life on earth including ourselves. I think this is a very interesting book because of the way it is written; it explains the theories and science behind the statements in the book very well. Flannery also writes the book as to not bore the reader but inform him or her of the facts and theory’s that surround climate change and what it is an will do to our planet, and how we as individuals can act to help save our world. I think that this book is another good source among many out there that shows the world that there is a real threat and that we must act or we will suffer the consequences. The weather makers can be used to inform of the changes that we are causing or it can be read as a story about Flannery and other scientist’s experiences in the environment. This book also has a grave element to it in the mid section of the book Flannery goes over know species that have gone extinct because of climate change and also ones that we have put at risk of extinction.
