Summary Where can you find the worst weather on earth? The surprising answer in "Tying down the wind" is: everywhere. You don't need to climb Mount Everest or voyage to the icy desert of Antarctica to witness both the beauty and the destructiveness of weather. The same forces are at work in your own backyard. Whether you fly a kite in a soft summer breeze or shovel snow after a January blizzard, the dynamics of wind and weather remain the same. Eric Pinder, certified observer at Mount Washington Meteorological Observatory, takes listeners on a voyage of discovery through the atmosphere, a swirling ocean of air that surrounds and sustains life. The journey begins in a sunny New England woodlot and ends atop the polar ice of Antarctica -- where we learn, remarkably, that the two extremes are not so different after all. What triggers changes in the weather? How are tornadoes, thunderstorms, heat waves, and blizzards all related?
