  • Timely and topical. Major weather events are becoming more common—and more severe—and Friederike Otto and her team at World Weather Attribution have developed the science to show us how our actions influence extreme weather events.
  • Angry weather uses cutting-edge science, and a gripping story centred primarily around Hurricane Harvey, to bring the socially and scientifically important information to the general public. 
  • Crucial, scientific research that helps readers understand our role in climate change, and how it affects our weather patterns.
