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
"A must read for all Americans. The authors are among our most eminent coastal scientists. They deliver, in clear and measured prose, an urgent message explaining how rising sea levels will affect New York, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and every coastal community in our country."--Bruce Babbitt "former Secretary of the Interior "
"An excellent, easy-to-read exploration of how oceans change and how the changes affect people their property, their relationship to nature, and their perception of what is permanent. This is a fascinating book for all concerned about the state of the planet we are leaving to our descendants."--John M. Teal "scientist emeritus, Woods Hole Oceanograhic Institution ""
"Sea level rise is a lurking dragon. Experts chart its pulse nervously, but speak quietly. Pilkey and Young pierce this reticence, telling a story that the public must understand or the dragon may burst out of humanity's control."--Dr. James E. Hansen "Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies ""
