Water Wars : The story of water is fascinating, complex, with roots as deep as civilization. Despite its profound, life-giving role in our planet's history, today what we hear about it is mostly bad news: the world's supply is severely at risk. We're reminded of this every day, with news of another drought, or alarming statistics about pollution, population growth, and climate change, which together threaten to make water, even more than oil, the cause of war within our lifetime. Diane Raines Ward reaches beyond the headlines to illuminate our most vexing water problems and tells the stories of those working to solve them: hydrologists, politicians, engineers, and everyday people. Based on ten years of research spanning five continents, Water Wars offers fresh insight into a subject to which our fate is inextricably bound.
