FRIEDERIKE (FREDI) OTTO is a physicist, climate researcher, associate professor, and the acting director of the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford. Otto is also a co-investigator on the international project World Weather Attribution, which assesses the human influence on extreme weather and has been profiled in the New YorkTimes, Nature, and others.
Attribution science-climate forensics, or reverse engineering-is a new discipline explained in this book with passion and verve by one of its creators. Fredi Otto is destined to be one of those rare scientists whose name becomes well known in the wider world. -Mark Denny, author of Making Sense of Weather and Climate: The Science Behind the Forecasts Angry Weather introduces us to the forensic scientists of climate change; if you like to watch CSI, you'll be equally enthralled with the skill and speed these folks exhibit. But the stakes are infinitely higher! -Bill McKibben, author of Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out? [A] thrilling work of nonfiction... If readers were holding any doubt about climate's effects on weather before picking up this book, that doubt will be eviscerated before the last gripping page. -Literary Hub This fascinating book takes us on a voyage across the cutting edge of climate science that irrevocably alters our perspective of the world in which we live and the future it holds. I wish I could make this book required reading for the world. -Katharine Hayhoe, UN Champion of the Earth
