Miami has a serious problem—water! Sometimes, on sunny days, water bubbles up from storm drains. Residents find their homes flooded. On some days, they see cars floating like boats and even fish swimming in pools of water in the streets. What is going on? And can anything be done to save the city from being completely flooded with water? Rising Seas: Miami, Florida traces the tragic story of the causes of global warming, how this affects Miami—a city built on porous limestone—and how engineers are using pumps and other technologies to save the city from disaster. Fascinating photos of the actual events, maps, and fact boxes enrich the compelling text. The personal and heart-breaking story will grip and inspire young readers.

School Library Journal Review of Eco-Disasters

Gr 4-6–A dramatic introduction sets the scene of each event, followed by short chapters that describe it from start to finish or to its current status, with an emphasis on its immediate and continuing human costs. Each book clearly states who or what was responsible for the disaster, and discusses restitution or lack thereof to victims, as well as the ongoing or long-term detrimental effects. “Fixing the Future” sections detail continuing cleanup efforts or measures to prevent future calamities….VERDICT: This set will help readers understand the myriad large-scale ecological disasters that can happen and their lasting human and societal costs. A solid purchase.
