Alexandria, VA – POLITICO today named High Tide on Main Street by Grieboski Global Strategies (GGS) Managing Consultant for Climate, Environment, and Sea Level John Englander as one of the 50 most important books to read.

“John Englander sounded a clarion call for the world when he released High Tide on Main Street,” commented CEO of Grieboski Global Strategies, Joseph K. Grieboski. “POLITICO’s recognition of John’s insights, knowledge, and capacity to save lives, properties, and communities is not surprising, as they have been recognized by countless leaders and are the backbone of Grieboski Global Strategies’ commitment and competence to ensure environmental protection and combatting climate change.”

POLITICO asked the members of The Politico 50 list to name the best books they read this year. Harold Wanless, Professor and Chair of the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Miami and a member of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, recommended Englander’s book.

In High Tide on Main Street, Englander explains the scientific proof behind rising sea levels, identifies myths and half-truths, and advises how to protect coastal assets in a realistic application for families, businesses, communities, and investors. The praise for Englander’s book demonstrates Englander’s expertise as well as emphasizes the urgency of rising sea levels.

Jean-Michel Cousteau, President of Ocean Futures Society, praised Englander’s work, “We owe it to ourselves to read this book and learn all that we can to be actively engaged in a sustainable future. With knowing comes caring, and with caring comes hope, and with hope the possibility for a better future.”
