John Englander is an oceanographer, spanning many disciplines and areas of expertise. He is a global ocean explorer with personal experiences on expeditions under the polar ice cap, deep dives in research submarines, and visits to Greenland and Antarctica. His mission is to be a clear, objective voice on our changing climate and oceans.

Mr. Englander’s broad marine science background, coupled with dual majors in Geology and Economics allows him to see the big picture on climate and look ahead to the
large-scale financial and societal impacts, particularly as they relate to sea level rise.

High Tide On Main Street: Rising Sea Level and the Coming Coastal Crisis, his new book, was released October 22, 2012, a week before Hurricane Sandy hit the New York
City area. John described just such an event hitting NYC as an example of what could occur, never imagining it would happen a week later.

The book has received unanimous strong praise for its ability to take the latest science and put it into a long-term view that anyone can understand. Using his own unique
metaphors, from a 47-floor elevator to the world’s largest outdoor swimming pool, he makes the height and timeframe of sea level rise compelling and memorable.
