Book | The Water Will Come

Rising seas, sinking cities and the remaking of the civilized world

Book Jeff Goodell 2017

Author and acclaimed journalist Jeff Goodell employs fact, science, and first-person, on-the-ground journalism to show vivid scenes from what already is becoming a water world. In his 2017 book, he travels across twelve countries and reports from the front lines of coastal regions in danger of disappearing if no action is taken on climate change. Despite international efforts and tireless research, there is no permanent solution-no barriers to erect or walls to build-that will protect us in the end from the drowning of the world as we know it. The Water Will Come is the definitive account of the coming water, why and how this will happen, and what it will all mean.
