Jeff Goodell on Climate Change, Sea Levels, and The Water Will Come


Bookish is dedicated to giving readers the best content around; that’s why we’re partnering with BookTrib to bring you this podcast interview:

Looking for a good book to curl up with this winter? We’ve got you covered! In this week’s episode of Just the Right Book Podcast Roxanne Coady is joined by Ellen Gamerman, the arts and culture reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Gamerman takes us inside the Journal, shares some winter reads, and even talks Oscars.

Later in this episode, Roxanne speaks to author, journalist, and Rolling Stone contributor Jeff Goodell about his latest book, The Water Will Come. Goodell, who has covered climate change for fifteen years, has previously written five books on topics such as the coal industry, geoengineering, and even a memoir about growing up in Silicon Valley. We have certainly heard doomsday scenarios about the impact of climate change, warming oceans, melting glaciers, and rising sea levels. We have witnessed destruction by hurricanes like Sandy, Irma, Harvey, and Maria. Yet most of us only have a vague understanding of what is causing it or how quickly and how destructively it’ll all happen.

Jeff Goodell is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and the author of five books, including How to Cool the Planet: Geoengineering and the Audacious Quest to Fix Earth’s Climate, which won the 2011 Grantham Prize Award of Special Merit. Goodell’s previous books include Sunnyvale, a memoir about growing up in Silicon Valley, which was a New York Times Notable Book, and Big Coal: The Dirty Secret Behind America’s Energy Future.
