The Weather Machine
A really interesting magazine article that got stretched out to book length. But full of interesting stuff, all the same. I really loved thinking about - but not really believing - some of the ideas here. Like, before global reporting efforts (weatherwatchers mailed postcards in, and symbols literally pinned to a map), people didn't think of weather as a global system or even something you could conceptualize from above - but only local weather patterns that just appeared, locally, and didn't have meaningful connections with like, the weather in other places. A delightful idea, but... I kind of doubt this.
