A guide by Penelope (San Diego, CA)

Below is my list of books about the weather and climate. I plan on reading them all in 2011. They cover Hurricane Katrina, the dust bowl, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, the ice age and the climate crisis. I've always been interested in the subject because I frequently travel and have always been impressed by how drastically weather can vary around the world and around the country.
