Across the globe, scientists and civilians alike are noticing rapidly rising sea levels, and higher and higher tides pushing more water directly into the places we live, from our most vibrant, historic cities to our last remaining traditional coastal villages. With each crack in the great ice sheets of the Arctic and Antarctica, and each tick upwards of Earth's thermometer, we are moving closer to the brink of broad disaster. Award-winning author and journalist Jeff Goodell has traveled across 12 countries to report from the front lines, using fact, science, and first-person, on-the-ground journalism to show vivid scenes from what already is becoming a water world. Goodell's previous book was recognized as a New York Times Notable Book.
