On April 22, the world observes Earth Day. It is an annual event held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Conversations and concern for the state of the planet have been on the rise and this is reflected in the increase of nonfiction books examining those concerns. One of them has been written by Jeff Goodell and is called The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World. Goodell specifically focuses on worldwide rising sea levels. His account explores twelve countries and utilizes first-person, on-the-ground journalism to understand what is happening, why it is happening, and what is likely to happen as mankind tries to escape the rising waters.
