In easily understandable prose and through use of true stories of exploration, Why the Wind Blows looks at how these adventures were influenced by weather and man's ignorance of its consequences. The science of meteorology is gently interspersed throughout the text, so that understanding weather becomes an integral part of the stories. Concluding with the influence of modern civilization on the changing climate and its world-altering consequences, the author challenges the reader to take action now to alter the effects of global warming on future generations.
