Overview

Not a Drop to Drink: Water for a Thirsty World by Michael Burgan

Global warming is a hot-button topic and has far-reaching consequences. Two of those consequences may be increasing desertification and drought around the globe. Researchers are racing to come up with ways to conserve water. Clean drinking water is already scarce in some parts of the world, and disputes over water rights create potential for conflict. Water, or the lack of it, impacts farming and world food supplies. Can science come up with answers to the problems affecting our most precious resource?
