Water Matters: Why We Need to Act Now to Save our Most Critical Resource
You've probably heard of peak oil, and you've probably heard of peak water. The truth is without fresh, clean, water, it doesn't matter if we have oil. Water is life sustaining; oil fuels modern luxuries.
Water Matters: Why We Need to Act Now to Save Our Most Critical Resource is an amazing resource of photographs and articles by leading environmentalists about our most precious resource.
Who controls our water resources and how much water do we have left? Can we enact meaningful changes in our personal lives, our policies and our laws to protect our remaining freshwater reserves? Can we learn to share water equitably with each other and the planet?
In this collection, some of the world's leading writers, activists, photographers, and artists have come together to answer those questions and put us on a path for change. Water Matters: Why We Need to Act Now to Save Our Most Critical Resource is a call to action and a solution-focused guide to solving our global water crisis. Authors take on both the good and the bad--the impact of climate change on water resources, the threat of privatization, and the challenge of thirsty agriculture, as well as a growing grassroots water justice movement, tools for watershed literacy, and success stories in conservation and efficiency.
I highly recommend this book! Everyone needs to read this and become educated on one of the most pressing critical issues of our time.
