Tim Flannery is a mammologist, paleontologist, environmentalist and global warming activist.
He has discovered and named more than thirty new species of mammals. His pioneering work in New Guinea prompted Sir David Attenborough to put him in the league of the world’s great explorers.
His book The Weather Makers has been a great inspiration and name giver to the company The Weather Makers. His book clearly spelled out a catastrophic vision if current trends in rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide continue, but argued that forceful action could avert a calamity. The Weather Makers share his vision and were inspired to formulate such an action.« Back to Glossary Index
