New book cites global warming as extreme-weather cause

on

Dr. Reese Halter, award-winning conservation scientist and founder of Global Forest Science, says severe weather patterns not only result in loss of life, but also create physical, emotional and financial damage. In his latest book, Wild Weather – The Truth Behind Global Warming, Halter highlights the linkages between the world’s extreme weather and global warming.

From hurricanes, blizzards and ice storms to tornadoes, drought and fire, Halter explains the relationship between Earth’s most devastating natural disasters and its changing ecosystem. Moreover, “As our world population continues to grow, understanding the impact of extreme weather and being prepared for the consequences is essential to the survival of every future generation,” he added.
