Pick up this cutting-edge book for the environmental activists in your life! In Blue Revolution: Unmaking America’s Water Crisis, award-winning journalist Cynthia Barnett proposes a new “water ethic” for America.


More about the book:

Just as the green movement helped build awareness about energy and sustainability, so a blue movement will reconnect Americans to their water, helping us value and conserve our most life-giving resource. Avoiding past mistakes, living within our water means, and turning to “local water” as we do local foods are all part of this new, blue revolution.


Beacon Press, which publishes Blue Revolution, is an independent publisher that promotes such values as freedom of speech and thought; diversity, religious pluralism, and anti-racism; and respect for diversity in all areas of life.
