About this book

In the middle of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas casinos use billions of gallons of water for fountains, pirate lagoons, wave machines, and indoor canals. Meanwhile, the town of Orme, Tennessee must truck in water from Alabama because it has literally run out.

Robert Glennon captures the irony-and tragedy-of America's water crisis in a book that is both frightening and wickedly comical. From manufactured snow for tourists in Atlanta to trillions of gallons of water flushed down the toilet each year, Unquenchable reveals the heady extravagances and everyday inefficiencies that are sucking the nation dry. Glennon's answers to this crisis are fittingly provocative. He proposes market-based solutions that value water both as a commodity and a fundamental human right.
