By Robert Glennon
The author of Water Follies provides a look at water in America today in a book that has been called "both frightening and wickedly funny."
Discussed are the Las Vegas strip, faux snow in Atlanta, super-sized bathrooms, mega-farms, billion-dollar water deals, politics, and more.
Glennon argues in the book that people cannot engineer their way out of the problem or use odd schemes. Rather, he provides an answer that is a market-based system with water valued as a commodity and a human right.
