Ocean's End: now on Kindle

My first book, Ocean's End: Travels Through Endangered Seas, is now available as an Amazon Kindle book.

Ocean's End, released in 2000, was one of the first books to demonstrate the global nature of the environmental crisis in the world's oceans. I traveled to Antarctica, the Central Pacific, the Belize barrier reef, Newfoundland, Louisiana, and the Black Sea to provide firsthand accounts of the (then pooh-poohed) effects of climate change, poor fisheries policies, nutrient pollution, and the mismanagement of river and flood control engineering in New Orleans. (Five years before Katrina, sources described their concerns about a hurricane striking the Lake Pontchartrain levees and the efficacy of the planned "vertical evacuation" to the Superdome.)

You can find excerpts from reviews of the book at my website, and updated reporting on the situation in the Black Sea, U.S., Greenland, and other locales via the articles section.

Ocean's End is also available in paperback (Basic Books) and in Mandarin Chinese (Yiwen).
