We have come a long way since the days when weather information could only be found in the back pages of newspapers. The Weather Obsession takes the temperature of modern weather media and investigates how it has fuelled our fascination with all things climatic. Weather information now pervades everything from our mobile devices to online news and social media, while the Bureau of Meteorology is a daily destination for millions of us. What has made weather so much more than a mere talking point? What happens when this data becomes big business? And what is at stake when it comes to how the media frames our understanding of the relationship between extreme weather and climate change? The Weather Obsession lifts the lid on our insatiable appetite for meteorological media and shows that while we might not have stopped worrying about the forecast, almost all of us have learnt to love the BOM.
