The American Meteorological Society Awards Chris Mooney For Storm World

Our own Chris Mooney was honored this week at the 89th Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society. He won the 2009 Louis J. Battan Author’s Award for Storm World: Hurricanes, Politics, and the Battle Over Global Warming, dubbed “an accurate and comprehensive overview of the evolving debate on the impacts of global warming on hurricanes that illustrates the complexities of this significant scientific problem.” It’s a compelling book that successfully provides an interesting and honest account of the history of storms and climate science, while taking a serious looks at the players and politics involved.

Mooney is a regular commentator at DeSmogBlog, contributing editor to Science Progress, and senior correspondent for The American Prospect magazine. He has authored three books, New York Times bestselling The Republican War on Science, Storm World, and forthcoming Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future. A founding member of ScienceDebate, he also writes for a variety of news and scientific magazines and blogs at The Intersection.

Congratulations Chris!

Chris Mooney on the global warming tipping point

In my recent conversations with peers in the science policy world (read “fellow geeks”), the same question has come up repeatedly of late: Why did global warming “tip”? How has the issue finally managed to go mainstream, so that even President Bush now seems on the verge of feeling its urgency?
Chris Mooney, author of the new book, Storm World, has a piece on Huffington Post today describing his thoughts on how global warming has moved into the spotlight as a major issue in America.
