Watershed by Elizabeth Grossman

Book Description

A close examination of the questions facing communities across the United States where dam removal is on the environmental and political agenda.. Dams and diversions along America's rivers have transformed the country and in doing so created environmental problems whose resolution will, in many ways, determine how we live in the next century. There are over 75,000 dams in the country and almost no major river in the country remains undammed. But now, for the first time in our nation's history, the pace of dam removal has overtaken the pace of construction as communities across the country commit themselves to river restoration, including the removal of harmful dams.Questioning the value of dams requires a serious readjustment in the country's notion of progress, a prospect threatening to some and daunting to all. Watershed examines the implications of dam removal to America's rivers and their communities by exploring the stories of a number of places where dam removal and river restoration are now underway. This is a story of people and place, and of a vital turning point in the nation's relationship to its rivers. 0813367824 the Spirit of American Law : an Anthology

Books By Author Elizabeth Grossman

Chasing Molecules by Elizabeth Grossman Chasing Molecules, Paperback (October 2011)

Focuses on the hazards of ordinary consumer products. This title shows that for the sake of convenience, efficiency, and short-term safety, we have created synthetic chemicals that fundamentally change, at a molecular level, the way our bodies work and states that consequences range from diabetes to cancer, reproductive and neurological disorders.

High Tech Trash by Elizabeth Grossman High Tech Trash, Paperback (September 2007)

An environmental journalist reveals that digital may be sleek, but it's anything but clean. Deep within every electronic device lie toxic materials that make up the bits and bytes, a complex thicket of lead, mercury, cadmium, plastics, and a host of other often harmful ingredients.
