Description
 
We’d like to believe there’s an infinite supply of usable water on our planet, but the truth is, we’re running out. Less than .0008% of the total water on Earth is fit for human consumption, & thanks to decades of diversion & pollution, that amount is dwindling with terrifying speed as the demand of our burgeoning pop. increases. Visiting the world’s hot spots -- those with the least amount of water, as well as places where there is so much that the excess is being auctioned off -- the author meets people on all sides of the water issue: survivors of bizarre water management practices; entrepreneurs scrambling for rights to ship water around the world at huge profits; scientists, & community leaders who are trying to set things straight. Updated with a new preface.
