|Format:||Print Book 2013|
|Availability:||Unavailable 0 copies|
The frequency and severity of tornadoes, hurricanes, tropical storms, thunderstorms, blizzards, ice storms, dust storms, and cyclones have all increased around the globe. Scientists have found evidence that these storms are likely triggered by an overall warming of the planet, due largely to human activity, particularly the burning of heat-trapping fossil fuels. Readers will survey the scope of the problem, learn about the mechanisms at work behind storms of increasing frequency and intensity, see the outlined steps being taken to combat the global warming that promotes intense storms, and learn about the cutting-edge technologies being developed to secure our homes, offices, and other buildings and structures as well as protect the human lives they contain.
