Living on the Real World: How Thinking and Acting Like Meteorologists Will Help Save the Planet

Living on the Real World explains why we should approach environmental issues collaboratively, each taking on a challenging aspect and finding solutions to small parts of the larger problem. It outlines current crises brought about by climate change and extreme weather, including impacts on food, water, energy, and then explores the ways we can tackle these problems together.

Partly to Mostly Funny: The Ultimate Weather Joke Book

Past President of the AMS Jon Malay decided a weather joke book could reach beyond the Society’s professional and academic membership to capture the interest of weather enthusiasts. Members submitted jokes, but none to the extent of Norm Dvoskin, who had been collecting jokes for years. Add to these cartoons by retired U.S. Navy Captain Jeff Bacon, who served as a career meteorologist/oceanographer as had Malay, and you have a book chock full of jokes, from knock-knocks to puns to cartoons, that will delight and entertain “weather weenies” of all ages.

Adaptive Governance and Climate Change

As greenhouse gas emissions and temperatures at the poles continue to rise, so do damages from extreme weather events affecting countless lives. Meanwhile, ambitious international efforts to cut emissions have proved to be politically ineffective or infeasible. There is hope, however, in adaptive governance—an approach that has succeeded in some local communities and can be undertaken by others around the globe.
