From the Publisher"In William James Burrough's Does the Weather Really Matter? there is an excellent discussion of exactly what modelers are attempting to do when predicting climate change...Rather than dwell on implicating human activity as the cause of global warming and weather change, Burroughs does an excellent job of documenting the social implications of weather using a fairly wide range of historical examples...In a balanced and accessible way, Burroughs has expertly combined an historical perspective with political and economic analysis and has explained the impact of extreme weather events on all aspects of society from a meteorological and climatological perspective." Satya
"I would recommend this book as essential reading for anyone with an interest in climate change and its effect on society. The subject matter has clearly been very thoroughly researched and the author's first-hand previous experience in government policy formation has been of considerable benefit when explaining some of the more political implications." Weather
"...I wouldn't hesitate to commend it to all who are concerned about the impact of climate change, irrespective of their perception of the threat." CMOS Bulletin
