Editorial Reviews

“Vivid and compelling, this book shows what life will be like in a warming world. Essential reading for anyone who’s planning to inhabit the planet for the next few decades.”
In this important and timely book, Heidi Cullen breaks ground...simplifying the connection between weather and climate and bringing the true impact of the problem, literally, right to your front door.
“A scorching vision of what life might be like in the warmer world that is already on its way. ”
“Heidi Cullen’s beautifully crafted study provides the human detail that has been missing from most reports on climate science…This book sets a new benchmark for accessible writing on the likely weather of the future.”
“In an accessible way, [Cullen] details the Earth’s climate history and forecasts what might happen if we’re not more careful.”
“[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.”
“Fact-filled and entertaining yet disturbing depiction of our world as temperatures rise...A lively and troubling but not entirely doomsday scenario of our warmer future.”
“Engrossing…the book presents a surprisingly optimistic view of humanity’s determination to come to terms with a daunting future.”
“This is a woman to whom attention must be paid.”
