Reading Recommendations: Storm Chaser

Storm Chaser, A Photographer’s Journey, by Jim Reed.

This is part of a larger post from my global warming blog (link at left if you want to go see it).

Storm Chaser is a series of beautifully presented professional photographs of storms, and might be worth buying just for the photos. But it’s real strength is in the straightforward narrative about global warming and climate change. Storm Chaser is organized by season, and each season includes a discussion of storm chasing and of the beauty and mystery of that season. This discussion – and the accompanying photos – show how climate change is now a central thread for people fascinated by powerful weather. It is the elephant in the sky that can’t be ignored.
