Description - When The Rivers Run Dry by Fred Pearce

The world is running out of water. Some of our largest rivers now trickle into sand miles from the ocean exhausted by human need. Water is 'the new oil' - except we can live without oil; there are no alternatives to fresh water. RED PEARCE explores the complex origins of the growing world water crisis. His vivid reportage reveals the personal stories behind failing rivers, barren fields, desertification, floods, water wars, and even the death of cultures. s there hope? Yes - but only if we revolutiuonize the way we treat water. This phenomenally important book shows us just how essential it is that each of us takes responsibility for the water we use now - before all our rivers run dry.
