Jeff Goodell is an award-winning investigative journalist and the author of The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World. (Little Brown and Company, 2017). He has established himself as an expert on climate change, rising oceans and humanity’s fraught relationship with our rapidly changing planet. As energy independence and global warming become increasingly urgent priorities, Goodell offers vital perspective on how to stem the tide of environmental disaster-and what’s at stake if we fail to act. Stepped in scientific research and on-the-ground reporting, The Water Will Come is written in the tradition of environmental classics like Silent Spring and The World Without Us.
