|Via Twitter, 12:40am Wednesday in Atlanta and it is still gridlock.|
FACT: A winter storm warning was issued between 3 and 4am Tuesday for the Atlanta Metro area. Schools should have been called off. Instead, they decided to have school. People have been (as of this writing) trapped in their cars for 10-12 hours. There are still school buses, full of children, trapped. People may die.
|Atlanta, 12:30am Wednesday. Utter gridlock.|
Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather tells how this progress came about in a very readable fashion. Once read, it will make CEO's, administrators, mayors, governors and others in positions of responsibility to make their weather-related decisions based on the best thinking of expert meteorologists. The book has a 5-star rating for its readability.
Here is an excerpt of a review posted at Amazon by an emergency manager:
'Warnings' is higly educational, but it reads nothing like a textbook. The writing is engaging and entertaining from cover to cover."
You can read the review in its entirety at the red link.
As a society, the United States simply cannot continue to put people in jeopardy due to a lack of faith in weather forecasts. So, I am making this offer: For any bona fide public official (mayor, school superintendent, governor) in the states of Georgia or Alabama who will request a copy on their official letterhead, I will send a free copy -- no shipping or any charge at all -- up to 100 copies. The requests must be received by February 7.
For everyone else, if you would like to read it while you are snowed in, the ebook version (with 16 extra color photographs) for Kindle is here and for Nook is here. Based on both professional reviewers and reader reviews, you'll learn a lot while having an enjoyable reading experience.
