DescriptionMark Twain said that everyone talks about the weather but no-one does anything about it. In EL NINO, award-winning Time magazine science writer J. Madeleine Nash tells the story of scientists past and present who did something about the incredible weather phenomenon known as El Nino. Over 150 years meteorologists, geologists, mountaineers and polar explorers added links of knowledge to a chain of observations that have given us the picture now known as ENSO - El Nino, Southern Oscillation. EL NINO's story is not just that of science and scientists-it is full of drama, triumph and tragedy and demonstrates persuasively that while weather and climate drastically affect the way people live, increasingly, the way people live is itself affecting the very weather and climate.
