Reviews

"

"In Rising Tides, the authors sound the alarm, not only on behalf of millions of displaced souls, but also because, as they note, 'Every one of us is or could be a migrant.'" -

"--Hill Rag Magazine

"A must read for policymakers and those in positions of power, especially the ones who remain in a state of denial about climate change and refuse to do enough to address the crisis."

--The Hindu

"This chilling and urgent call to action spares no detail in its mission to present the facts on a looming humanitarian disaster. Climate-change warning messages too often focus on the environment without going into specifics of how humans will be hurt by global warming. Rising Tides singlehandedly rectifies this issue.... Thanks to an equal reliance on current events and models, as well as the authors' thorough understanding of geopolitics, the case is beyond convincing."
