Forces of nature by Vivian Fuchs( Book )

Since earliest man walked the earth, he has known how inextricably his life and his survival were intertwined with nature and nature's elements. It is only in the modern age, with its increasingly sophisticated technology, that man has come to believe he could control these forces. If men have lulled themselves with technology into a false sense of safety, science can still teach them much. A team of eleven distinguished scientists reveal what science knows about the causes and manifestations of extreme natural phenomena, about how we can predict their onslaught, how we can guard against them, and just how far we can expect to control them.--From book jacket
