The world's most fundamental and indispensable resource - water - is becoming scarcer, fast. In fact, a global shortage of water is looming as one of the most threatening ecological, economic, and political crises of the 21st century. Blue Gold tells the frightening story of the commodification of water and its consequences. It illuminates the issues and starkly identifies the choice we have to make: to become responsible custodians, managing and distributing water in the public interest.
'The evidence is staggering... this is a terrifying read!' The Village Voice - 'The book shines - probably the most eloquent call-to-arms we're likely to hear about the politics of water' The Globe and Mail - 'If you want to understand what the GATS treaty will do to the world's resources, here's where to start' The Ecologist
