A unique combination of scientific fact, history, folklore, and literature, explaining the atmospheric processes we call weather, and addressing the profound effect weather has had on human evolution and the effect human activities have had on weather. Discussion encompasses ice ages and the ascent of man, the Greek experience, revolutions in meteorology, the sun, and the history of air. A final chapter looks at meteorosensitive people who forecast changes in weather through their bodies, as well as proverbs and almanacs. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

"The goal of this study was to document the weather observational history of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The climatic data, and information from the observations made there, are readily available and may be accessed through the National Climatic Data Center, the Midwestern Regional Climate Center, and the State Climatologist of Wisconsin. The challenge of this study was to identify the role that Milwaukee played in the development of a federal weather observational program and where it fit in the route that followed from the Smithsonian Institution's observers, through the U.S. Army's Signal Service Observers, and the Weather Bureau meteorologists, to the current National Weather Service Forecasters and their extensive observational and forecast network of today"--Introduction.

Most studies of the impacts of climate change consider impacts in the future from anthropogenic climate change. Very few consider what the impacts of past climate change have been. History and Climate: Memories of the Future? contains 13 interdisciplinary chapters which consider impacts of change in different regions of the world, over the last millennium. Initial chapters assess evidence for the changes, while later chapters consider the impacts on agriculture, fisheries, health, and society. The book will be of interest to anyone working in the field of climate change and history.

As alarm over global warming spreads, a radical idea is gaining momentum. Forget cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, some scientists argue. Instead, bounce sunlight back into space by pumping reflective nanoparticles into the atmosphere. Launch mirrors into orbit around the Earth. Make clouds thicker and brighter to create a "planetary thermostat." These ideas might sound like science fiction, but in fact they are part of a very old story. For more than a century, scientists, soldiers, and charlatans have tried to manipulate weather and climate, and like them, today's climate engineers wildly exaggerate what is possible. Scarcely considering the political, military, and ethical implications of managing the world's climate, these individuals hatch schemes with potential consequences that far outweigh anything their predecessors might have faced. Showing what can happen when fixing the sky becomes a dangerous experiment in pseudoscience, James Rodger Fleming traces the tragicomic history of the rainmakers, rain fakers, weather warriors, and climate engineers who have been both full of ideas and full of themselves. Weaving together stories from elite science, cutting-edge technology, and popular culture, Fleming examines issues of health and navigation in the 1830s, drought in the 1890s, aircraft safety in the 1930s, and world conflict since the 1940s. Killer hurricanes, ozone depletion, and global warming fuel the fantasies of today. Based on archival and primary research, Fleming's original story speaks to anyone who has a stake in sustaining the planet.

In easily understandable prose and through use of true stories of exploration, Why the Wind Blows looks at how these adventures were influenced by weather and man's ignorance of its consequences. The science of meteorology is gently interspersed throughout the text, so that understanding weather becomes an integral part of the stories. Concluding with the influence of modern civilization on the changing climate and its world-altering consequences, the author challenges the reader to take action now to alter the effects of global warming on future generations.

From low humor to high drama, TV weather reporting has encompassed an enormous range of styles and approaches, triggering chuckles, infuriating the masses, and at times even saving lives. In Weather on the Air, meteorologist and science journalist Robert Henson covers it all—the people, technology, science, and show business that combine to deliver the weather to the public each day. Featuring the long-term drive to professionalize weathercasting; the complex relations between government and private forecasters; and the effects of climate-change science and the Internet on today’s broadcasts. With dozens of photos and anecdotes illuminating the many forces that have shaped weather broadcasts over the years, this engaging study will be an invaluable tool for students of broadcast meteorology and mass communication and an entertaining read for anyone fascinated by the public face of weather.

We live in a world that is increasingly vulnerable to climatic shocks - affecting agriculture and industry, government and international trade, not to mention human health and happiness. Serious anxieties have been aroused by respected scientists warning of dire perils that could result from upsets of the climatic regime. In this internationally acclaimed book, Emeritus Professor Hubert Lamb examines what we know about climate, how the past record of climate can be reconstructed, the causes of climatic variation, and its impact on human affairs now and in the historical and prehistoric past. This 2nd Edition includes a new preface and postscript reviewing the wealth of literature to emerge in recent years, and discusses implications for a deeper understanding of the problems of future climatic fluctuations and forecasting.

Eight essays from a summer 2004 meeting of the International Commission on History of Meteorology, held in Kloster Polling, Upper Bavaria, launch a new series on the history of the science of atmospheres. The topics include meteorology in John Herschel's (1792-1871) terrestrial physics; understanding cloud formation, cloud chambers, and the role of meteorology in Cambridge physics in the late 19th century; and atmospheric science, aviation technology, and neocolonialism in the Americas 1919-45.

Will it rain tomorrow? That perennial question has made weather the most popular segment of local television news for years. Yet weathercasters do far more than simply convey the latest outlook. Depending on the circumstances, they may inject humor into the forecast (having a Lhasa apso pant and wag its tail during the forecast, for instance), warn of a life-threatening tornado or hurricane, or instruct viewers on the science behind weather. This book, the first critically to examine weathercasters and their craft, is based on years of research and covers both the lighthearted and serious aspects of television weather. Chapters include pioneer weathercasters of the 1940s and 1950s, technical advances, interaction with the National Weather Service, severe weather coverage, celebrities who began with television weather, and the status of women and minorities in weathercasting.

History and Climate Change is a balanced and comprehensive overview of the links between climate and man's advance from early to modern times. It draws upon demographic, economic, urban, religious and military perspectives. It is a synthesis of the many historical and scientific theories, which have arisen regarding man's progress through the ages. Central to the book is the question of whether climate variation is a fundamental trigger mechanism from which other historical sequences develop, or one amongst a number of other factors, decisive only when a regime/society is poised for change. Evidence for prolonged climate change is not that extensive. But it is clear that climatic variation has regularly played a part in historical development. Paricular attention is here paid to Europe since AD 211. Cold and warmth, wetness and aridity can create contrary reactions within societies, which can be interpreted in vary different ways by scholars from differenct disciplines. Does climate change exacerbate famine and epidemics? Did climate fluctuation play a part in pivotal historical events such as the mass exodus of Hsuing-nu from China, the pressure of the Huns on the Romans and the genesis of the Crusades? Did the bitter Finnish winter of 1939-40 ensure the ultimate defeat of Hitler? These episodes, and many others are discussed throughout the book in the authors distinctive style, with maps and photographs to illustrate the examples given.
