There is growing concern over the impacts of climate variability and anomalous and unusual weather. While social and economic systems have generally evolved to accommodate some deviations from 'normal' weather conditions, this is rarely true of extremes. For this reason such events can have the greatest and most immediate social and economic impact of all climate changes. This book is the first to explore the cultural contingency of such weather events, and the ways in which they are recalled, recorded or forgotten. It illustrates how geographical context, particular physical conditions, an area�s social and economic activities and embedded cultural knowledges and infrastructures all affect community experiences of and responses to unusual weather. Contributions refer to varied methods of remembering and recording weather and how these act to curate, recycle and transmit extreme events across generations and into the future. With international case studies, from both land and sea, the book explores how and why particular weather events become inscribed into the cultural fabric of communities and contribute to community change in different historical and cultural contexts.

Dennis Mersereau and the editors of Outdoor Life magazine offer their life saving advice to help you survive blizzards, hurricanes, firestorms and much more. As a weather reporter, it’s only natural that Dennis Mersereau is a self-proclaimed weather freak. Slate.com said of him, “Don’t mess with the Mersereau. He will find your weather fables and he will crush them . . . We need more Dennises. In fact, the National Weather Service itself should be run by Dennis, with each local office headed by a Dennis-like weather blogger tasked with explaining the relevant weather news of the day, and entertaining us when the weather is boring.” Luckily for you, he’s partnered with the outdoor experts at Outdoor Life to bring you the foolproof guide to surviving extreme weather. From how to read the sky, to which of your grandma’s no-fail weather predicting tips actually work, to how to survive a Storm of the Century, this book has you covered. Filled with weird weather facts (what are those weird sounds under the snow and should you worry about them?) to hands-on survival hints (literally hands-on. Like, don’t lose your fingers to frostbite) to true tales of amazing survival, the Extreme Weather Survival Manual is the one book you need to weather any storm. With high-quality design, intricate detail, and a durable flexicover—this manual is the perfect gift!

In the two decades bracketing the turn of the millennium, large-scale weather disasters have been inevitably constructed as media events. As such, they challenge the meaning of concepts such as identity and citizenship for both locally affected populations and widespread spectator communities. This timely collection pinpoints the features of an often overlooked yet rapidly expanding category of global media and analyzes both its forms and functions. Specifically, contributors argue that the intense promotion and consumption of 'extreme weather' events takes up the slack for the public conversations society is not having about the environment, and the feeling of powerlessness that accompanies the realization that anthropogenic climate change has now reached a point of no return. Incorporating a range of case studies of extreme weather mediation in India, the UK, Germany, Sweden, the US, and Japan, and exploring recent and ongoing disasters such as Superstorm Sandy, the Fukushima nuclear crisis, flooding in Germany, and heat waves in the UK, Extreme Weather and Global Media generates valuable inquiry into the representational and social characteristics of the new culture of extreme weather.
