    The Rising Plays Out in the Gulf

    It's been quite some time since I read The Rising, Journeys in the Wake of Global Warming, by Tom Pollock and Jack Seybold. It is not unusual for me to read a book and ¿ sooner than I'd like to admit ¿ forget everything about it. The Rising was not such a book. The images of the survivors and their subsequent rebuilding of their lives were mesmerizing. The most startling, almost-exact images are now being shown from the Gulf as the survivors of Hurricane Katrina move across our consciousness. We feel little doubt that the terrible weather event was made worse by the climate change discussed in The Rising. It is my hope that the book will get wider readership now that so much of this 'fiction' has proved to be so real. ¿ Betty Neville Michelozzi

    Rising: Journeys in the Wake of Global Warming

    From the moment we started reading 'The Rising' we became absolutely riveted by the enfolding drama which you so skillfully wrote. We, along with Joanna, our friend who reads to us, became so engrossed with the story, that each morning after breakfast, we three would say, 'Well, shall we read?' This book diserves to be well-marketed and distributed, for it is truly a significent story.

    Rising: Journeys in the Wake of Global Warming

    This book is compelling, not just because of the theme, but because the authors have developed characters who, in a realistic way, respond to a global catastrophe. Too little is found in current popular culture about the very real (and pending) crisis of global warming. 'The Rising' tells us in detail about the scientific facts that underlie current warnings about the acceleration of this process due to the impact of human beings on our earth's ecological system. The melting of the Anarctic ice sheets has already begun. The book hypothesizes about the effect of the rapid melting of other ice sheets, and the response of people on the west coast of the United States, as the ocean rises. The authors are to be commended for discussing this topic. The book is highly recommended for all who care about the future of our planet.

    Awareness Alert

    When one¿s relative creates a contribution to society, one naturally approaches such creation with some degree of skepticism. Such was the case when I approached the reading of THE RISING: Journeys in the Wake of Global Warming. It was with a great deal of pride that I finished the book with the realization that my brother had indeed created not only an interesting ¿story¿ but also a message that is thought-provoking with imminent importance to today¿s entire population. This is a book that should be read by persons from all walks of life, as the reality of the situation occurring is significant, and would affect everyone without regard to location, social status, or knowledge. Thank you, Tom and Jack, for a book that gives us a picture of a future that could be created by today¿s ignorance and denial.

    A Book Everyone Should Read

    A book that makes you think of the everyday workings of our society that we take for granted on a day to day basis and would have to live without in the face of such a disaster. Characters and story lines that make you want to keep turning the pages.
