    One thought on “Water in Plain Sight: Hope for a Thirsty World”

    1. There are a lot of popular misconceptions regarding the water crisis that we're facing and this book does a pretty good job addressing them. Everyone who actually cares about anything has heard things like there's a gallon of water in every almond and 450 gallons in every hamburger. Most of those who hear these numbers stop their research there, thinking they "get it." Unfortunately those who keep digging beyond that point start to see that it's not so simple. A lot of this stuff sounds sort of [...]

    2. Water: a basic human need and one of our ultimate biological components. Water is what makes our planet special, our existence unique, and we depend on it for everything: drinking, cooking, and cleaning, to name a few. We cannot survive without water. So when I see headlines reporting imminent water shortages, droughts, and H2O-related crises all over the world, my breath catches in my throat as I imagine families driven from their homes and livestock dying from dehydration. What is the meaning [...]

    3. A hard book to read because of all the science but I learned so much! So many new ideas about how water, soil and trees work together, things I didn't know even though I am pretty well versed about organic farming ideas.

    4. This book provides hope and inspiration as well as real life knowledge that can help us deal with climate change.

    5. A must read for those of us who want to save the planet. We need to use her methods to find and conserve water.

    6. I enjoyed Cows Save The Planet, so I wanted to read this book as well. This one was tough for me to find a groove with, but there were a few sections I enjoyed.Here are my favorite excerpts:Pesticides and fertilizers disrupt the synergy between plants and microbes - relationships that are fundamental to plant health and the formation and stability of soil carbon. In turning to technology to solve water problems, so often we are merely relieving the symptoms of an impaired water cycle without ack [...]

    7. 4.5 starsSchwartz presents a surprisingly optimistic look at the future of water accessibility - holistic planned grazing offers a chance for omnivores to keep at least some meat in their diet, condensation collection could help mitigate desertification, better management of runoff could prevent devastating floods and droughts from occurring (in sometimes the same places), and so on.While scientists have finally acknowledged the contribution of soil quality and grasslands to climate and water ma [...]

    8. I'd like to see this book as required reading for high school students. It's an eye opener for how we view nature and the positive impact we can have if we use land restoration techniques.

    9. Although, Judith covered much of the same ground in her book Cows Save the Planet, which champions Holistic Land Management, there is enough novel information regarding fresh water cycling and climate change to make it a worthwhile read. A few of the fascinating things I learned:*Raindrops need to form around a particle, but not any only particles will do. Which is why you can be in a hazy, humid city, but not get any rain.
