‘The Water Will Come’ explains the reality of rising seas

January 2021
Miami, New York, Lagos and other coastal cities will vanish as we know by the end of this century because of rising seas.

In his book, The Water Will Come - Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World, Jeff Goodell writes about his visits to coastal cities around the world and explains the why of rising sea levels. He describes how it’s already happening and what it means going forward.

"Sea-level rise is one of the central facts of our time, as real as gravity," writes Goodell.

The Water Will Come is a must-read.
