Declining water resources

Tiffany Foster, Renee Hoyos, and Joanne Logan discussed Maude Barlow's book Blue covenant : the global water crisis and the coming battle for the right to water. Ms. Hoyos said "This book brings the challenges to managing water for the future into sharp relief. While we sometimes think that we have plenty of water, resources are declining due to bad development and industrial practices. This book is a real eye-opener and a must read for those concerned about the future of water worldwide and locally." (Recorded February 2, 2010)
