We cannot live without water, but 7.5 billion people are now competing for this single unevenly-distributed resource. Exploring the growing world water crisis, Fred Pearce reports on places where waterways are turning to sand before they reach the ocean; where fields are parched and crops no longer grow; where once fertile ground has turned to desert; where wars are fought over access to water and cultures are dying out. Explaining what we can do to stop our rivers drying up this landmark work could transform the way we view the water in our reservoirs and rivers, and change the way we treat the water in our taps.
