Atmosphere of Hope

A decade ago Tim Flannery’s #1 international bestseller The Weather Makers was one of the first books to break the topic of climate change out into the general conversation Today Earth’s climate system is fast approaching a crisis Political leadership has not kept up and public engagement with the issue of climate change has declined Opinion is divided between technological optimists and pessimists who feel that catastrophe is inevitable. If you ve been keeping up with developments in climate science and have a good handle on denier tactics there won t be much in the first two thirds of this book that s new to you If you haven t this is a solid primer The crux of the book is the last third which summarises efforts to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere looking at their readiness and cost and assessing how much of a part they might play in reducing the impact of climate change There are lots of numbers as you d expect prices tonnes of C tonnes of CO2 tonnes of feedstock and so on Most of the mature technologies seem not that hopeful and the most hopeful solutions seem not that mature But I reckon Flannery s right that we need to start putting some serious effort into researching and developing them because emissions reduction and adaptation to climate change effects are not goin Make your own model forts & castles remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere looking at their Tremors of Fury (The Days of Ash and Fury readiness and cost and assessing how much of a part they might play in How Julian and Nigel Turned Each Other Gay (Inadvertently), or So They Both Claim reducing the impact of climate change There are lots of numbers as you d expect prices tonnes of C tonnes of CO2 tonnes of feedstock and so on Most of the mature technologies seem not that hopeful and the most hopeful solutions seem not that mature But I The Mage (Foxcraft, Book 3) reckon Flannery s Illustrated Workbook for Self-Therapy for Your Inner Critic right that we need to start putting some serious effort into Earthfall (Homecoming, researching and developing them because emissions A Daddy for Christmas reduction and adaptation to climate change effects are not goin

Published in 2015 Tim Flannery s Atmosphere of Hope is a largely a follow up to his 2005 work The Weather Makers Although I liked the entire book I especially enjoyed the chapters on adapting and geoengineering At the risk of sounding naive I just find stories about scientists mitigating glacial retreat by adding sawdust to their edges or a city that is able to reduce its temperatures by increasing its albedo really neat The geoengineering chapter also provides a useful overview of the costs merits and arguments against any geoengineering strategy Flannery also likes what he calls third way approaches which I understand as attempts to draw carbon from the atmosphere by restoring developing and expanding carbon sinks It seems clear that Harvey s portfolio of policies as opposed to a silver bullet approach remains the right way to think about respondi
