Baum (U. of New Mexico Law School, Albuquerque) presents the first book to explore various areas in which law and weather meet and affect each other. The text addresses law related to weather in the U.S. in the context of specific cases, legislation, and administrative legal action, through a sampling of cases and a select few weather events representing the 200 years of U.S. history. Baum focuses on three main areas: the history and role of the government in weather reporting, forecasting, and warning systems; human attempts to affect the weather and governmental regulation of those efforts; and liability for harm resulting from weather-related incidents that affect individuals. For meteorologists, weather historians, attorneys, and interested general readers. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
