Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Water Consciousness is designed to change the way people think about water. It explores all aspects of the water crisis and what we can do about it. Compelling contributions by Bill McKibben, Maude Barlow, Vandana Shiva, Wenonah Hauter, Sandra Postel, Tony Clarke and other top environmental writers explain the problems and inspire readers to action. The book contains over 50 stunning photographs and a quiz to find out your own water footprint. Beautifully designed to be accessible to readers, it provides essays on privatization, bottled water, conservation, appropriate technology, lessons from indigenous cultures, and an argument for the need for new public policy on the right to water.
