"Jeff Goodell's latest contribution to the environmental cause paints an eye-opening portrait of humankind's dilemma as temperatures -- and sea levels -- continue to rise. The Water Will Come brings together compelling anecdotes from all over the globe and shocking expert assessments that should make the world's few remaining skeptics reconsider. Read this book for a reminder of the stakes -- right now, today -- and why we have to work harder, faster, to address the climate challenge."―John F. Kerry
"Jeff Goodell has taken on some of the most important issues of our time, from coal mining to geoengineering. 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 Extinc
"Once you've read an excellent book about climate change, which Jeff Goodell's The Water Will Come most certainly is, you can never unremember the facts... Goodell has been writing about climate change for many years... he's the real deal, committed and making house calls."―Jennifer Senior, The New York Times
"This harrowing, compulsively readable, and carefully researched book lays out in clear-eyed detail what Earth's changing climate means for us today, and what it will mean for future generations... It's a thriller in which the hero in peril is us."―John Green
"Even if we could halt further growth in greenhouse gas emissions today, we would remain locked into several centuries of sea level rise ahead. Jeff Goodell's The Water Will Come shows us how this stark truth will unfold, right down to individual human experiences."―Laurence C. Smith, author of The World in 2050
"For people who want to learn more about climate change, rising sea levels and what it means for our future, read The Water Will Come."―Chris Hayes, MSNBC

‘A frightening, scientifically grounded, and starkly relevant look at how climate change will affect coastal cities.’
‘I like science books, but I don’t usually find them page-turney. This one really is―it’s a thriller in which the hero in peril is us.’ (John Green)
‘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)
‘Jeff Goodell grabs you on the first page and doesn't hold up until this essential story is told. He presents a vivid warning and a call to arms to the generation that gets to decide how fast, and how high, the water will come.’ (Scott Ludlam) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This fast-paced, well-written book will have you selling your real estate in no time at all.
A frightening resemblance to the way the stock markets have been flooded with liquidity for more than a decade now - while all players know that the complete meltdown is inevitable. Yet they pump more liquidity into the markets and keep rates down, just to push the inevitable out as much as possible. Well, in Miami Beach, we pump water, yet fueling the liquidity in an ever increasing speculative real estate market.
The author researched the systemic issue of climate change world wide and made very interesting connections to climate patterns affecting food supply and causing social unrest and large scale migration.
It is truly sad that it will only one read by those people who already know. For the rest its just fake news. But there is always a bright side - we'll be able to sell our overpriced Real Estate to the the climate change deniers. After all its all fake news of a leftists conspiracy movement that wants to destroy the coal and oil industry.

Das wohl beunruhigendste Teil ist die Schilderung der Reaktionen von Politik und Industrie, die entweder den Ernst der Lage verschweigen, die Situation verharmlosen oder auch abstreiten. Es wird offensichtlich, dass keine ernst zu nehmenden Pläne vorliegen, wie man in Zukunft auf die Auswirkungen des steigenden Meeresspiegels reagieren wird.
Goodells Analysen sind auch für den Laien veständlich, ebenso sind die Teilaspekte Politik und Wirtschaft umfassend berücksichtigt, so dass ich das Buch, ob es nun in der englischen oder deutschen Fassung vorliegt, ohne Vorbehalte empfehle.
