Every day meteorologists sift through a deluge of information to make predictions that help us navigate our daily lives. Instead of being overwhelmed by the data and possibilities, they focus on small bits of information while using frequent collaboration to make decisions. With climate change a reality, author William H. Hooke suggests that meteorology's stepwise, collaborative approach points the way to solving urgent global problems.
