Gambling With the Climate of Our PlanetBook - 1999
Storm Warningexplores what the dramatic and dangerous consequences of global warming may be. It examines some of the reasons we're struggling to deal with an environmental problem whose effects may prove devastating, perhaps even catastrophic. As Canadians have seen all too well with recent flooding and ice storms, the weather has the power to affect all aspects of our lives. What's more, extreme weather events appear to be happening with increasing severity and frequency. Lydia Dotto explores the scientific scenarios and the continuing debate over the causes and effects, as well as the practical options available. She is particularly concerned with our procrastination in dealing with increased emissions of greenhouse gases, which cause climate warming. It seems that in our state of near-paralysis we have chosen -- by default -- to gamble with the climate of our planet.
