Water The Drop of Life: A Book Review
Water is everywhere. In our bodies, our food, our possessions. We need water to survive. It truly is the drop of life. When all we need to do is turn on the faucet for water, it's easy to think that this resource is limitless, that there will always be enough water for everyone on the planet. But this isn't true. Water is disappearing. This book will show it to you. It will take you across the globe, from Namibia to Jordan to Spain, to prove that water isn't a limitless resource. It is disappearing. And fast.
But this book also shows solutions. It offers hope and offers examples of where individuals, businesses, and governments have stepped up and taken responsibility for managing this essential element of our lives. We don't have to let a lack of water destroy the planet. Everyone can manage water more efficiently, and even little steps can make a difference.
