Description

It is no wonder that water is always in the news: it covers about three quarters of the planet's surface, and humans need a clean supply of water to live. The quality and quantity of water directly impacts our economy, our health, and our environment. ""Water in the News"" explores the science behind the headlines; contaminated drinking water, disappearing wetlands, and oceans under threat from overfishing and global warming are just a few of the pressing concerns discussed in this book. But readers will learn that there is good news, too, as various organizations, governments, and many individuals work to protect and promote wise use of our many water resources. In addition to providing the basic science background, ""Water in the News"" puts each topic into a historical context, helping students stay afloat of the information necessary to fully understand these important issues.
