Through years of research, acclaimed author and investigative journalist Jeff Goodell has established himself as an expert on the coal industry, geoengineering, and climate change. As the price of oil soars and the seas rise, as energy independence and global warming become increasingly urgent priorities, Goodell offers a vital perspective on how to stem the tide of environmental disaster—and what is at stake.

His newest book, The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World, is an immersive look at the global crisis of rising oceans. Steeped in scientific research and on-the-ground reporting, The Water Will Come is written in the tradition of environmental classics like The World Without Us.

Jeff Goodell is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and a frequent contributor to The New York Times Magazine and Yale University’s Environment 360. He covers environmental issues, including the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and is the author of the New York Times bestseller Our Story: 77 Hours That Tested Our Friendship and Our Faith, based on the terrifying hours nine Quecreek miners spent trapped underground.
