Glennon discusses an assortment of near-term and long-term solutions. The urgency of the problem leads him, in my opinion, to underemphasize some long-term efforts, particularly a dramatic expansion of desalination. Nonetheless, it's refreshing that the author presents some thoughtful solutions rather than just wringing his hands about the problems.
Glennon's writing is well-researched, and numerous photos and maps help clarify the text. His style is enjoyable, which helps the reader get through the rather depressing message. A must-read for those who care about finding solutions to problems of national scope.
I found it interesting the author admitted that he didn't take navy showers -- that is, to turn off the shower between rinses, as they must to save water on a ship. That seems to sum up where the author is coming from, or isn't coming from. I know my water-saving techniques around the house don't really amount to a hill of beans, but what about "be the change you want to see in the world"? Maybe all we need as a species is for each of us to become that straw on the camel's back -- to push that cultural tipping point and turn things around for our future.
