An extremely well written and fully illustrated book. It looks as climate change and flooding with clear explanations and shows that actions can be taken to reduce climate impacts. I finally understand why flooding events have increased. The concept of resilience that is explained is very hopeful. A great book for anyone interested in the topics of climate, weather, water and design.
