The Water Will Come

Tuesday 09 January 2018

What if Atlantis wasn't a myth, but an early precursor to a new age of great flooding?

With each crack in the great ice sheets of the Arctic and Antarctica, and each tick upwards of Earth's thermometer, we are moving closer to the brink of broad disaster. The Water Will Come is the definitive account of the coming water, why and how this will happen, and what it will all mean.
