Deep Water: The Epic Struggle over Dams, Displaced People, and the Environment. By Jacques Leslie. The 45,000 dams in the world have altered the speed of the planet's rotation, the tilt of its axis, and the shape of its gravitational field. This book examines the emerging crisis over dams and the world's water through the lives of three people: the world's foremost anti-dam activist; an American anthropologist; and an Australian water manager. Each of these portraits shows how dams seduce national leaders with seeming bounties of water and power but end up producing blights on the citizenry and landscape.

Full Planet, Empty Plates: The New Geopolitics of Food Scarcity. By Lester Brown. With food scarcity driven by falling water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures, control of land and water is moving to center stage in the struggle for food security. The ability to grow food is a new form of geopolitical leverage – food is the new oil. What will the geopolitics of food look like in an era of scarcity and food nationalism? Brown outlines the political implications of land acquisitions in Africa and elsewhere by grain-importing countries as well as of our shrinking buffers against poor harvests. As Kindle | More…

Lifelines, The Case for River Conservation. By Tim Palmer. The health of our nation is reflected in the health of our rivers. These flowing streams supply our drinking water and they sustain the biological wealth of the continent. Central to our past and vital to our future, rivers are the lifelines, yet they are constantly under siege. Now we face increased diversion of flows, loss of riparian habitat, and pollution from toxic waste, feedlots, farms, and clearcuts. Palmer examines the alarming condition of rivers in today's world and reports on what people are doing to solve the challenging problems. As Kindle | More… | Tim Palmer EcoSpeakers Info >>

Outgrowing The Earth. By Lester Brown. Falling water tables in countries that contain more than half the world's people and rising temperatures worldwide are the leading threats to global security. Water shortages and crop-withering heat waves are shrinking grain harvests, making it difficult for the world's farmers to feed 70 million more people each year. Tightening food supplies could drive up food prices, destabilizing governments in low-income grain-importing countries and disrupting global economic progress. Future security depends on raising water productivity and stabilizing climate and population. More…
