This is a book that made me think--from beginning to end. I'm not an engineer or a scientist, but I love learning about it in easily digestible ways. This book was accessible for even a poetry person like me. It helped me see how water and energy work together and sometimes against each other. So often these issues are presented as either/or, and I began to understand how much more complicated everything is. There are solutions to explore, but probably nothing is one size fits all--that was new information for me.
This is an engaging book that makes sense of the complex dynamics between water and energy. Michael has provided a clear examination of the issues of providing adequate energy and water for the world's growing population. He acknowledges the challenges we face and offers thoughtful scientific and policy-based solutions. Highly recommended.
