Kulturgeschichte des Klimas

Blitz und Donner zu schleudern war ein Vorrecht der Götter, und Petrus schickte Regen und Sonne, wie es ihm gefiel. Viele Jahrhunderte - wahrscheinlich sogar noch viel länger - funktionierte das ganz gut ohne menschliche Beteiligung. Das war einmal. Heute machen wir das Wetter selber. Fachleute sind sich einig: Der Klimawandel geht weitgehend auf unser Konto. Zeit für ...more

This is a recent translation from German of a book originally published in 2007.

While this book is explicitly a history of climate, the author keeps a steady focus on the implications of the historical narrative for the present debate on global warming, about which he has some interesting thoughts.

The book naturally falls into two parts. The first several chapters cover climate history from the origins of the earth 4.6 billion years ago through the present. This is a decent overview although mig

"Wolfgang Behringer begibt sich mit seinem Buch „Kulturgeschichte des Klimas“ buchstäblich auf dünnes Eis, ist doch das Thema „Klima“ fest in Händen der Experten aus Politik, Kirche und Pädagogik. Hier darf nicht sein, was dem festgelegten Mainstream widerspricht. Das apokalyptische Zukunftsszenario wird wie eine Monstranz den Gläubigen vorweg getragen, Spötter sprechen deshalb auch von der Klimakirche. In diese Gemengelage aus Hypothesen, Daten und Glauben mit einem kritischen Buch zu ...more
I gave 3 stars to this book for two reasons. The very very interesting historical information that provides and the extensive references at the end of the book for the reader that wants to go deeper into the field of culture+climate.

although I now find in other reviews that most of the facts in the book have been published elswhere, for me as a layman this is the first comprehensive overview of history as a chain of events strongly influenced by climate changes. and what an overview it is. a real treat, especially the first 80 or so pages. finally I understand where and why "the sea people" came at 800b.c. ;)
so, it is nicely written, reads easily and the facts remain with you. is it truth? I honestly do not know. there ispr

Un bel libro che finalmente prende una posizione giustamente "neutra" sul problema. Non si tratta di negare il riscaldamento globale ma di ridimensionare alcune posizioni estremiste e "di comodo" assunte da una certa parte della comunità scientifica e politica.
Il libro è ricco di informazioni e di fonti. Peccato che un po' troppo spesso si lasci andare a illazioni non provate e salti di logica eccessivamente azzardati.
