Fred Pearce: Fighting Earth’s Water Shortage

Fred Pearce: Fighting Earth's Water Shortage

As an author and journalist exploring science and environmental issues for two decades, Fred Pearce knows how individual countries are reacting to various threats to the planet’s longevity. His concern today, as in his new book When The Rivers Run Dry, revolves around the Earth’s water resources, with some 7.5 billion mouths fighting over an unevenly distributed supply. What can be done about our drying world? Chaired by Sheena McDonald.
