MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for "Atmosphere of Hope"
Thoughtful, candid andyesultimately upbeat, "Atmosphere of Hope" could not be more timely. It is just the book the world needs right now. Elizabeth Kolbert, author of "The Sixth Extinction"
The book does a remarkably good job of arguing that there is still hope for averting catastrophic climate change . . . [Flannery] fully acknowledges the steep challenges and serious obstacles we face. So when he affirms that a path to averting catastrophic climate change remains in place, we know the conclusion is not reached capriciously . . . Flannery s exploration of the climate change problem is comprehensive. He covers everything from the underlying basic science to the nitty-gritty details of prospective solutions. The book is at its best when laying out the latter . . . What Flannery providesa convincing defense for the position that a path to averting catastrophic climate change still existsis invaluable. "Los Angeles Review of Books"
In his new book, "Atmosphere of Hope," best-selling Australian author Tim Flannery counsels cautious optimism by showing how the millions of small actions taken by individuals are driving down oil consumption and points out how new Third Way carbon-capture technologies promise to reduce emissions and create massive economic opportunities. "National Geographic"
An informative tour of promising multipronged approaches to one of humanity s biggest challenges. Flannery s solution-focused quest is especially timely. "Booklist"
Flannery argues for renewed optimism in human capabilities to reverse the destabilizing effects of climate change. For years, the author has been in the forefront of spreading the warning of climate change s dire consequences to a broad audience . . . A sharp summary of energy potentialities, where the good and the bad reside in human hands, hearts, and minds. "Kirkus Reviews"
Certain people rise above the crowd. They choose to use their extraordinary talent and intelligence to make a difference. Scientist, scholar and activist Tim Flannery is one of those rare people . . . "Atmosphere of Hope" is a brilliant examination of where we are with climate change and where we might be able to go. "National Observer" (Vancouver)
Praise for "The Weather Makers"
An authoritative, scientifically accurate book on global warming that sparkles with life, clarity and intelligence. "Washington Post"
At last, here is a clear and readable account of one of the most important but controversial issues facing everyone in the world today. If you are not already addicted to Tim Flannery's writing, discover him now. Jared Diamond, author of "The World Until Yesterday" and "Guns, Germs & Steel"
Flannery . . . is without question an extraordinary scientist. . .. A passionate explication of human influence on climate change and a call to action. . . . A tour de force. "Science Magazine""
