2.4 billion people have no toilets or sewers, and 1.1 billion do not
even have drinkable water. Every day, an estimated 22,000 people, half
of them children, die of diseases borne by polluted water, such as
typhoid, cholera, malaria and diarrhoea.

------Apart from concerns over
energy and oil resources, economists say a
global shortage of water would curtail the world's ability to raise
food -- perhaps by 2025. Fred Pearce is an environmental and
development consultant at New Scientist. In his book, When
the Rivers Run Dry. subtitled "The Defining Crisis of the
Pearce surveys levels of water resources and efficiency in more than 30
countries, sketching a picture of the future of the world's rivers.
The book makes a strong—and scary—case that a worldwide water shortage is the most fearful looming environmental crisis. With a drumbeat of facts both horrific (thousands of wells in India and Bangladesh are poisoned by fluoride and arsenic) and fascinating (it takes 20 tons of water to make one pound of coffee), the former New Scientist news editor documents a "kind of cataclysm" already affecting many of the world's great rivers. The Rio Grande is drying up before it reaches the Gulf of Mexico; the Nile has been dammed to a trickle; reservoirs behind ill-conceived dams sacrifice millions of gallons of water to evaporation, while wetlands and floodplains downriver dry up as water flow dwindles. In India, villagers lacking access to clean water for irrigation and drinking are sinking tube wells hundreds of feet down, plundering underground supplies far faster than rainfall can replace them—the same fate facing the Ogallala aquifer of the American Midwest. The news, recounted with a scientist's relentless accumulation of observable fact, is grim. Maps. (Mar.)
