Published in 2015 Tim Flannery s Atmosphere of Hope is a largely a follow up to his 2005 work The Weather Makers Although I liked the entire book I especially enjoyed the chapters on adapting and geoengineering At the risk of sounding naive I just find stories about scientists mitigating glacial retreat by adding sawdust to their edges or a city that is able to reduce its temperatures by increasing its albedo really neat The geoengineering chapter also provides a useful overview of the costs merits and arguments against any geoengineering strategy Flannery also likes what he calls third way approaches which I understand as attempts to draw carbon from the atmosphere by restoring developing and expanding carbon sinks It seems clear that Harvey s portfolio of policies as opposed to a silver bullet approach remains the right way to think about responding to climate change Individual action for most people this will mean food and transport is admirable but counts for little compared to changes in policyThe subtitle Searching for Solutions to the Climate Crisis is telling perhaps because policy wins have felt too rare In the Weather Makers Flannery reported that the three greatest threats to the climate were the collapse of the Gulf Stream the collapse of the and the release of clathrates methane buried under the Arctic permafrost Now it seems that scientists are most worried about ocean acidification the release of methane from the permafrost and the collapse of the due to deforestation and forest fires More broadly perhaps the greatest worry is that so much progress has been made and yet global greenhouse gas emissions are still rising The scope of the problem is all but overwhelming hence the titleReaders would probably do well to read both The Weather Makers and Atmosphere of Hope especially since they re both efficiently and engagingly written But given that science technology and policy are ever evolving if one had to opt for one work or the other I suppose I d recommend Atmosphere even if Weather Makers is slightly better written Lardżelka climate from all the nations in the world This book anticipates and will influence the debatesTime is running out but Beauty Ravished catastrophe is not inevitable Around the world people are now living with the Reviving the Broken Marionette conseuences of an altered Service Book of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America climate with intensified and freuent sto.

Characters ´ Atmosphere of Hope Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free A decade ago Tim Flannery’s #1 international bestseller The Weather Makers was one of the first books to break the topic of climate change out into the general conversation Today Earth’s climate system is fast approaching a crisis Political leadership has not kept up and public engagement with the issue of climate change has declined Opinion is divided between technological optimists and pessimists who feel that catastrophe is inevitable. A roller coaster rideIn December this year the next United Nations Climate Change Conference will convene in Paris to make decisions on how to cap carbon emissions at a level that will ensure that global temperatures will rise by no than 2 Celcius compared to pre industrial levels This book is a summary of where we are now and an action plan for the future The book is heavily polemical very much Tim Flannery s personal attempt to influence the decision makers As a scientist and leading environmentalist of long standing Flannery is Professorial Fellow at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute University of Melbourne a member of the Australian Independent Climate Council and chairman of the Copenhagen Climate Council so he s certainly ualified to speak authoritatively on the subject This was a bit of a roller coaster read for me both in terms of style and content In the introduction Flannery lays out his stall Taking as his starting point his own earlier book The Weather Makers he sets out to show how things have developed over the decade since where his opinions have changed over the years and what he now thinks are the best ways forward if we want to avoid catastrophic climate change At this stage I was concerned I might find the book unreadable His style is abrasive self aggrandizing and arrogant and much of the introduction and early chapters read like a piece of self advertisement He mentions his previous book umpteen times dismissing anyone who has criticised any aspect of it over the years and spends far too long justifying his then conclusions In fact at times there is a sense almost of paranoia as if he is the victim of a conspiracy of vested interests trying to discredit his work He is vitriolic about the Abbott government in Australia still in power when he was writing but now gone Of course as the clich goes just because you re paranoid doesn t mean they re not out to get youHowever having vented his spleen Flannery then settles down into a series of well written chapters where he lays out the current situation very clearly He starts with a bleak picture of what may happen if temperatures are not contained to the 2 C target to the Arctic and Antarctic to forests wildlife and oceans and not least to humanity in those parts of the world most sensitive to rising temperatures It s all stuff we ve heard before but brought up to date with the latest science Flannery assumes throughout that by this time only those with vested interests in the carbon industries are still denying the link between man s activities and climate change and so is dismissive and even occasionally virulent about deniers There is throughout a feeling of urgency no time left to waste preaching to the unconverted let s just ignore them and get on with what needs to be done Fine by me but this is not a book to win over waverers with charm The next few chapters take us through individual aspects of energy production starting with the dirty ones and moving on to the clean This was the part of the book that gave me a sense of hope assuming Flannery s figures are correct and I see no reason to doubt them then fossil fuels seem to be losing their overwhelming attractiveness as renewables become both efficient and cheaper due to economies of scale We re nowhere near out of the woods but Flannery made me feel as if perhaps we ve spotted the path In the final section Flannery discusses how he believes we should proceed His position is that even in the unlikely but not impossible event that we reduce fossil fuel use to zero over the next few decades we will still have the problem of existing CO2 in the atmosphere to deal with He discusses the difficulties of the task and goes into some detail on some of the schemes that have been put forward To my unscientific mind lots of these sound like pie in the sky schemes or actually poison in the sky to be accurate Flannery himself isn t keen on the kind of geo engineering scheme that suggests pumping other stuff like sulphur into the atmosphere in order to induce cooling on the grounds that firstly we can t foresee all the possible implications and secondly the underlying problem of too much carbon still remains He suggests what he calls a third way a mixture of preparing for climate change by making necessary adaptations at a local level while attempting to remove CO2 from the atmosphere by a variety of schemes from massive seaweed farms to storing carbon in rocks and plastics that he feels could be effective without the risks of geo engineering To be honest much of this sounded impractical and a bit like wishful thinking to me but hey Most of it was well over my head scientifically and he s an expert so I ll give him the benefit of the doubt It s always been my opinion that it will have to be the scientists who solve this problem in the end and the role of governments and the people should be to give them the finances and resources they need while trying to stop any of them accidentally blowing up the galaxy in their enthusiasm However after cheering me up in the earlier chapters I m afraid this final section plunged me back into gloom the sheer scale of the task and the short termism of so many governments make it all seem pretty overwhelming I comforted myself with the thought that perhaps Flannery had done this deliberately so that no one would be approaching the Paris Conference feeling over confident Overall well worth reading a good introduction for anyone new to the subject and a thorough update for those with a little
