Fishman's new book on Water
Today on NPR's "Fresh Air," host Terry Gross interviewed journalist Charles Fishman about his new book, The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water. You can listen to the interview and read an excerpt from the book at :
After listening to the interview, it sounds like Fishman hits many of the major points that we need to address in Atlanta - water used in energy production, lawns, recycled water and "purple pipes," increased metering and tiered pricing structures . . . I wonder if he has anything to say about agriculture? Or Georgia in particular? I'm looking forward to reading the book!
