Editorial Reviews

Review

"A wide-ranging, nuanced view of difficult but important issues that require serious consideration at every level, from policymakers, opinion shapers, and educators down to everyday citizens."—Kirkus Reviews
 
"Concise, relevant, and engaging."—E. Gomezdelcampo, Choice
 
"For those concerned about water and energy—which should be everybody—Michael E. Webber has produced a jewel of a book."—Martin J. Pasqualetti, School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning and the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, Arizona State University
 
"A highly accessible and engaging overview of one of humanity’s most pressing problems and opportunities. How we manage energy and water will shape the twenty-first century, and with guides like Dr. Webber we can use policy, technology, and economics to craft cleaner, more efficient solutions."—Philip Mezey, President and CEO, Itron, Inc.
 
"Webber makes a compelling case for pursuing both technological and nontechnical solutions for managing the water-energy nexus. He observes that ‘in the end, the most important innovation we need is a new way of thinking about energy and water so that we make better decisions about these precious resources’ and lays out the case for why and how to do that. This is an important and deeply readable book."—Susan Tierney, Analysis Group
 
"Few, if any, issues are more important to humanity’s well-being over the next half century than the transition to cleaner energy and access to abundant, safe, and clean water. Michael E. Webber’s well-researched and detailed, yet highly readable, new book takes the reader on a journey of the water-energy nexus and lays out concrete and actionable technical and policy solutions. This book provides a valuable road map for how to protect our most critical resources for future generations."—Jason Bordoff, Columbia University Center on Global Energy Policy
 
"The premise is compelling and timely. The strength of the book is its clear explanation of ways in which water is used in the production of energy and how the existing system is likely to come under considerable strain in the future."—David Sedlak, author of Water 4.0
