Author Susan Casey at Poptech 2010
Melting ice caps, rising sea levels, warmer temperatures -- these are the kind of problems we regularly associate with global climate change. There are, of course, a host of other changes caused by the warming climate, many of which consistently fly under the radar. For instance, climate change appears to be making waves bigger and steeper in oceans around the world. I caught up with Susan Casey, who spent years studying waves for her new book The Wave, at this year's Poptech. She briefly explained the latest research on climate change's strange impact on waves.Susan Casey's book, The Wave: In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks and Giants of the Ocean, came out last month.
