Praise

“A strong—and scary—case that a worldwide water shortage is the most fearful looming environmental crisis. With a drumbeat of facts both horrific (thousands of wells in India and Bangladesh are poisoned by fluoride and arsenic) and fascinating (it takes 20 tons of water to make one pound of coffee), the formerNew Scientist news editor documents a ‘kind of cataclysm’ already affecting many of the world’s great rivers.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Oil we can replace. Water we can’t—which is why this book is both so ominous and so important.”
—Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

“. . . perhaps it is time for you to spend some time with Fred Pearce and his wonderful When the Rivers Run Dry.”
