The Georgia Straight reviews new book from ACT author and adviser on water issues, Bob Sandford.

"As Vancouver is about to experience intense rainfall, it's worth paying attention to a new book called Storm Warning: Water and Climate Security in a Changing World (Rocky Mountain Books). That's because it offers deep insights into why Canada has experienced unusual rainfall patterns in recent years.

Written by Alberta-based water expert Robert William Sandford, Storm Warning points out how climate change is transforming hydrological cycles. A warmer atmosphere carries more water vapour, increasing the likelihood of more intense storms.
