This is a dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted popular science media and organisations. The physical phenomena of climate and weather are amongst the most complex in nature, and science can say very little about what they will do in the future. Yet a large international policy framework has been built around the assumption that we know precisely what is happening and how to control it."Taken by Storm" is a provocative volume that challenges this assumption, carefully explaining the science of climate change and deconstructing the simplistic concept of global warming. It argues that the issue of global warming is leading to an unprecedented schism between science and society, but it also proposes a vital first step that can be taken toward repairing this relationship.
