The Weather Makers
Tim Flannery
Harper Collins
Nothing puts a downer on holiday festivities like a good ol’ climate crisis. But as Tim Flannery points out in what’s probably the best-written and accessible book on the subject, the earth is in terrible danger. Over 13,000,000,000 tonnes of carbon are released into the atmosphere annually. That’s us, folks. With props from everyone from David Suzuki to Tony Blair, Flannery’s call to battle is written with urgency and passion, and best of all, offers tangible ways for people to change their own energy-sucking habits. The perfect book for all the Stephen Harpers and Rona Ambroses on your list.
