In THE WATER WILL COME, he explains the threat of sea level rise with characteristic rigor and intelligence. The result is at once deeply persuasive and deeply unsettling." —Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning and New York Times bestselling author of THE SIXTH EXTINCTION  "Sea level rise is coming. We know this as clearly as we know thermometer measurements, the melting point of ice, and the law of thermal expansion. Jeff Goodell’s book cuts through the fossil-fuel lies, and is a warning I hope we heed while there’s still time." —Senator Sheldon Whitehouse READ THE PUBLISHER'S PRESS RELEASE HEAR AN NPR INTERVIEW ON 10/24 WITH GOODELL CHECK OUT A COMMENTARY BY COLLIDER MEMBER CLASS M COMMUNICATIONS READ A BOOK REVIEW IN USA TODAY More about Jeff Goodell Jeff Goodell is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and the author of five books, including HOW TO COOL THE PLANET: Geoengineering and the Audacious Quest to Fix Earth’s Climate, which won the 2011 Grantham Award of Special Merit.
