Christina Conklin's The Atlas of Disappearing Places depicts, via rich illustration, the effects of climate change on Earth's coasts and oceans and includes a case study of Houston, Texas. In beautifully rendered maps and other visualizations, Conklin paints a stark portrait of a planet on the brink. Hear how she and her co-author Marina Psaros went about their work, and what she believes might be done to help secure the future of humanity’s home.
