Summary:
While rising seas are now inevitable, we are far from helpless. By making hard choices--including uprooting citizens, changing where and how we build, and developing a coordinated national response--we can save property, and ultimately lives. With unassailable research and practical insights, The Rising Sea is a critical first step in understanding the threat and keeping our headsabove water.
