Tim Flannery dedicated the first edition of The Weather Makers to children- 'to all of their generation who will have to live with the consequences of our decisions.' Seventy percent of the people who are alive now will be alive in 2050. This is the date, many scientists agree, by which we have to cut our carbon emissions by 70%. Since its publication in September 2005, The Weather Makers has had a huge impact on our consciousness of climate change. It has changed minds and hearts. This book now demands a younger audience- the school children who will inherit the new climate which their parents and grandparents have helped to create.These new readers will have a chance to act on Tim Flannery's advice about the dangers of profligate use of fossil fuels and to find the solutions to save our planet.Today's teenagers are the vital audience for a book about the most urgent issue of our time and of their future. This revised and updated Young Adult edition is written in a style that is accessible and engaging.
