This is an auction for WE ARE THE WEATHER MAKERS: THE STORY OF GLOBAL WARMING, by Tim Flannery.

"This adaptation of Flannery's 2005 adult publication shows the results of meticulous research and superb grounding in scientific facts. It lays out, in great detail, the ways in which humans have changed our weather and the possible outcomes for us and our planet if we continue as we are going. Clearly labelled illustrations accompany difficult concepts and greatly aid in understanding the sometimes-complicated climate models. Each chapter ends with a "Call to Action" describing how humans can make relatively simple changes in our lifestyle to reduce our impact on the planet."
- School Library Journal (US)

"This youth edition of Flannery’s adult title, The Weather Makers (2005), speaks straight to “the generation who will act on global warming” about the realities of climate change and the devastating consequences if humans don’t alter their behaviour to protect Earth’s atmosphere, its “great aerial ocean.” The language is both blander and more direct than in Flannery’s adult book: an opening section originally titled “Gaia’s Tools” has been changed to “Earth’s Carbon Cycle and You,” for example. What remains are the lucid explanations of science, illustrated with numerous examples, including many chosen specifically for this youth edition; and each chapter ends with suggested ways that young people can reduce the carbon emissions in their homes, schools, and communities. The comprehensive coverage of issues and urgent call to action make this a must-have resource for both school and public libraries."
