Roger Pielke Jr. announces a new book – In recent years the media, politicians, and activists have popularized the notion that climate change has made disasters worse. But what does the science actually say? Roger Pielke, Jr. takes a close look at the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the underlying scientific research, and the data to give you the latest science on disasters and climate change. What he finds may surprise you and raise questions about the role of science in political debates.
Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, the conviction that climate change is already increasing weather-related natural disaster losses is strengthening. In Disasters and Climate Change, Roger Pielke, Jr. lays out the evidence with his usual cogency and invites readers to come to their own conclusions. A valuable and timely contribution — Prof. John McAneney, Managing Director, Risk Frontiers, Macquarie University
