About this book

The Weather of the Future offers detailed predictions of what the world will look like if nothing is done to curb CO2 emissions. Combining interviews with climate scientists from around the world and state-of-the-art climate model projections, the author spells out the inherent risks that global warming poses for everyone – not just those who live on the coasts.

"[Cullen] accepts weather as a local matter, just as Tip O'Neill, longtime speaker of the House of Representatives, proclaimed all politics to be local [...] The Weather of the Future, uses a broad itinerary to illustrate the threats she perceives."
