Author Talk: John Englander, Author of "Moving to Higher Ground"

Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Join John Englander for a discussion of his new book, "Moving to Higher Ground: Rising Sea Level and the Path Forward" (2021). A Q&A session will follow the presentation. Enrollment required. A link to the virtual meeting will be emailed upon enrollment.

John Englander is a renowned oceanographer, multi-book author, speaker, and expert on climate change and sea level rise. His 2012 book, High Tide on Main Street, explained the science in easy-to-understand terms. Politico listed it as one of the top fifty books to read. Englander’s new book, Moving to Higher Ground: Rising Sea Level and the Path Forward (The Science Bookshelf) was released April 6, 2021 in hard cover, soft cover, e-book and audiobook.

His broad marine science background, coupled with explorations in Greenland and Antarctica, allows him to see the big-picture impacts of changing climate and rising sea level on society. Millions of people in the US and around the world have read his books, or heard his message through blogs and popular talks.

Englander is consistently rated as one of the best speakers on climate change and sea level rise, and works tirelessly to help communities understand why sea level will rise far higher than most can imagine and likely much sooner too.

As a leading spokesperson for “intelligent adaptation”, John is the foremost advocate that, globally, we must move to higher ground. John’s background as a scientist, explorer, entrepreneur, and CEO (International SeaKeepers Society, Cousteau Society) combine to help him analyze not just the scientific impacts of profound SLR, but also the business, economic, and humanitarian impacts.
