Publisher Comments:

Former Senator Paul Simon delivers stirring eveidence of a catastrophic water crisis which will explode upon the global community unless drastic measures are taken in all corners of the world, including in our own backyards.

He not only lucidly poses the potentially catastrophic problem of dwindling global water resources for general readers, but also proposes answers: desalination, conservation, pollution and population control, and practical tips on what citizens can do (including writing to your senators and to him).
