Did you know that...Sea level will rise for at least 1,000 yearsShorelines will shift significantly by 2050Property values may start to decline this decadeRising sea level is the most profound long-term aspect of climate change. Yet, the public is almost completely unaware of the magnitude of the problem. For three million years sea level regularly moved up and down almost 400 feet with the ice age cycles. Now, after 6,000 years of minimal change, we are entering a new era of rapid sea level rise. In clear, easy-to-understand language, this book explains:* The science behind sea level rise, plus the myths and partial truths used to confuse the issue. * The surprising forces that will cause sea level to rise for 1,000 years, as well as the possibility of catastrophic rise this century. * Why the devastating economic effects will not be limited to the coasts.* Why coastal property values will go "underwater" long before the land does, perhaps as early as this decade.* Five points of "intelligent adaptation" that can help individuals, businesses, and communities protect investments now and in the future.

John Englander has been fascinated with the continuous 400-foot rise and fall of sea level since he was a geology/economics major, four decades ago. His passion for ocean processes evolved into a career of ocean exploration, creating the largest resort scuba facility in the world, based in the Bahamas. He went on to become CEO of the Cousteau Society, and then at The International SeaKeepers Society. He led two diving expeditions under the northern polar ice cap, and also has first hand experience in Greenland and Antarctica. Englander is a Fellow of the Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology, a senior advisor at the Global Environment and Technology Foundation, and a member of various professional scientific groups. He lives in low-lying South Florida and takes a very pragmatic approach to the effect of rising seas on coastal property values.
