Weather affects much more than how we dress, where we go, or whether or not we carry an umbrellaall life reacts and responds to weather in one way or another. Careful observation would show us that crickets are natures thermometers, garden ants swarm when summer thunderstorms approach, and sharks swim into deep water when air pressure drops. This fact-filled volume examines the fundamentals of atmospheric science as well as the cultural impact of weather, surveying historic record-breaking conditions across the world, the behavioral and physiological impact of weather on plant and animal life, and human responses to climate change.
