Never mind what you’ve heard about the coming effects of climate change.  As Elizabeth Rush disturbingly documents, we are already seeing widespread effects of sea level rise. With great empathy and a lyrical voice she closely examines the response of various American coastal communities to the dramatic changes they struggle to face.

An astounding study in climate change in the aftermath of a monster volcanic eruption (10 times the force of Krakatoa). This single natural event had world-wide consequences: New England blizzards in June; European food riots; panicking establishment of fringe religious sects; mass population shifts; even the composition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.  What a year!
