Can Israel's Water Be a Model for a Thirsty World?

Hosted by  • 

Drought is a fact of life in the Western United States, and water shortages are predicted in many parts of the world. Israel is an unlikely place to look for solutions. Although 60% of the State of Israel is a desert, Israel has no lack of water. In fact, there's a surplus. That's a consequence of how Israel came to be and how it can help other places survive water shortages inevitable in the future. That's the theme of Let There Be Water: Israel's Solution for a Water-Starved World. The author is Seth Siegel, who's a lawyer, activist and entrepreneur as well as a writer.
