Eden investigates further the extremes of weather we experience and the dire consequences for farmers, builders and above all insurance companies who live by a calculation of actuarial risk.  Many of us have become disconnected from our climate, writes Eden. However bizarre weather events may seem at the time, there is usually a precedent for them, and there is always a scientific explanation. Only by reconnecting in this way can we have proper historical and scientific contexts in which to place the sequence of interesting and unusual meteorological phenomena we will experience in coming years.

Eden writes the weather column every week and has a huge following and post bag.


Weather and climate- what the differenceThe scientists take overMonitoring the weatherFrom guess work to super computersFixing the weather/Making rain and killing hailDeliberate modification of the climate?Future imperfect


"[Eden] takes a rather unusual tack in what is generally the day-to-day existence of weather people, and that is to take into consideration what we have experienced in the past to try to come to an understanding of what we are experiencing now and in the future."
A sequel to Philip Eden's hugely successful book The Daily Telegraph Book of the Weather.
