While rising seas are now inevitable, we are far from helpless. By making hard choices - including uprooting communities, changing where and how we build, and developing a coordinated 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 heads above water.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the things I like best about The Rising Sea is its inclusion of many examples of climate-change adaptation, which suggests an emerging emphasis on climate-change adaptation and linkages between the natural world and people."--Conservation Biology
"The Rising Sea is a must-read, not only for those of us living on the coast but for everyone concerned about meeting the challenges of the future."--Florida Times-Union
"The Rising Sea takes on a host of contentious issues, ranging from the science of climatology to the politics of coastal planning to the economics of engineering, all the while taking into account the perverse psychology of a populace loath to acknowledge the truth when doing so proves disruptive. Although insistent, Pilkey and Young are never unduly alarmist."--Issues in Science and Technology
"Pilkey and Young's balanced, optimistic perspective on the tough decisions that lie ahead should garner interest from policy makers and real estate developers as well as environmentalists."--Publishers Weekly
"The Rising Sea....is a book that is likely to inspire many. The authors knowledgably and effectively sound the retreat from the coast."--Electronic Green Journal
