The extreme weather you’ve been seeing around the world in recent years might lead you to wonder what might be in store for the future. Atmospheric scientist Michael E. Mann’s clear description of what’s causing the phenomenon and how it is likely to play out in decades ahead provides valuable context for preparing to deal with future disasters, and suggests concrete actions people can take now to minimize future harm. Though the theoretical physics might be more information than some readers want or need, the take-home message is clear: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions now.
