Alex Prud'homme: The Shaky Fate of Fresh Water
Our water consumption doubles every 20 years, but our supply stays the same. The EPA is too underfunded to effectively monitor water quality, and several U.S. cities are dangerously close to running out. Add global warming, a population boom, and pollution, and it's easy to see why experts predict water will be our greatest global concern in the coming years. Journalist Alex Prud'homme, author of The Ripple Effect, explains the declining state of our fresh-water supplies, and why it's past time to pay attention to our most vital resource.
