Book Description

3 May 2011
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. "Water Matters" is a book that will make you pause for a moment to remember the life-sustaining value of water in our daily lives, and then inspire you to do everything you can to preserve and protect our threatened water resources. Contributors include: Maude Barlow, Cynthia Barnett, Jeff Conant, Brock Dolman, Paula Garcia, Wenonah Hauter, Barbara Kingsolver, Jacques Leslie, Tara Lohan, Kelle Louaillier, Bill McKibben, Sandra Postel, Christina Roessler, Tina Rosenberg, Elizabeth Royte, Eleanor Sterling, Erin Vintinner, and William Waterway.

Well written. Very informative. Great background material for reports but organized and written in a way which presents this very important issue with factual information.
