In many countries, safe drinkable water is not a guarantee. This book looks at the challenges to the world water supply, and the far-reaching environmental, commercial and political costs if those challenges are not met. Among the topics covered are problems of population growth and climate change.
Each book in the series examines environmental science from every angle - local, global, historical and even personal. Young readers learn how to get to the heart of a problem, find out about people who are trying to solve it, and discover how they can get involved now.... and in the future, The Second nature series brings together teachers, scientists, authors and editors to create a team strategy for exploring the most pressing environmental issues of our day.
