Peak Water: Civilisation and the World's Water Crisis


Product Information

Peak water is the point when the available water is not enough to meet the demands of the world's growing population. We might live on a watery world, but we are exhausting accessible supplies. Many parts of the world are already facing this crisis, and not only in the developing world. Some of the places experiencing 'peak water' are in the USA, Europe and the UK. Even the wettest lands will be engulfed in the global catastrophe that looms - this is the issue of our age.

This tale flows from the moment a ditch was dug in old Iraq, to the way our modern cities work. It links the hanging gardens of Babylon to the first water supply for Los Angeles, the ancient myth of the Nile to swimming pools in the desert.

Basically, we have to stop wasting it, polluting it and pretending it's an infinite resource...

Written by Alexander Bell, published by Luath Press, 2009. This is the hardback edition.
