Running Out of Water: The Looming Crisis and Solutions to Conserve Our Most Precious Resource - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780230615649

ID: 978023061564

Water is the world''s life source and essential to all living creatures. Although we live on the blue planet, only 3 percent of all our water is drinkable. Yet we''ve grown accustomed to using it with abandon - individuals consume about 80 to 100 gallons per day adding up to the equivalent of an Olympic sized swimming pool every year. By this decade''s end, when the world population is predicted to reach 8 billion, we will face severe shortages. In this ground breaking and forward-looking book, Harvard professor Peter Rogers and former general manager of the San Francisco Utilities Commission, Susan Leal give us a sobering perspective on the water crisis-why it''s happening, where it''s likely to strike, and what puts the worst strain on our supply. They explain how water''s unique status as a renewable but finite resource misleads us into thinking we can always produce more of it. They introduce exciting new technologies that can help revolutionize our consumption of water and explain how different areas of the world have taken the helm in alleviating the burden of water shortages.Rogers and Leal show how it takes individuals at all levels to make this happen, from grassroots organizations who monitor their community''s water sources, to local officials who plan years in advance how they will appropriate water, to the national government who can invest in infrastructure for water conservation today. Informed and inspiring, Running out of Water is a clarion call for action and an innovative look at how we as a nation and individuals can confront the crisis.

Titel:

Running Out of Water

ISBN-Nummer:

0230615643

While many believe that water is a renewable resource that will never go away, the truth is the availability of this essential element is delining. Global warming creates moonscapes where there were once snow packed mountains. Population growth has pushed demand straining our current supply almost ensuring that water will become as coveted as oil in the 21st century. As our supply of this precious resource declines, there are critical answers to answer: Can we learn to conserve? Can we find ways to renew this resource? Do we have the political will to act wisely before it is too late?Peter Rogers and Susan Leal are experts who have decades of experience between them dealing with the conversation and protection this precious resource. Through the use of case studies or "success stories", Rogers and Leal explain in accessible terms the water world with its all scientific, economic and political complications. With these success stories, they provide a prescription to address this crisis and manage future needs.Deftly weaving science, politics, economics and human foibles, Running Out of Water offers a comprehensive look at the crisis - from the West coast where mighty rivers are being diverted for California's agriculture to Gulf coast of Florida where the snowbird retreats have grown into major metro areas outpacing their natural resources; to the traditionally thirsty parts of the world like southern India where the water is available but infrastructure to take it to the tap is limited or nonexistent. Focusing on solutions, Running out of Water lays out the political leadership, policy action and technology tools required to sustain out water supplies.
