Aguanomics: Water Follies, The Review, September 27, 2011.
“[I]f you want to scare yourself silly, read Water Follies, by Robert Glennon. In it you’ll learn how America is irrigating itself to death–just like the Sumerians–while sucking its groundwater aquifers dry.”
–Margaret Atwood, Toronto Globe & Mail
“…a book as rich in detail as it is devastating in its argument.”
“Water Follies deserves a place alongside the late Marc Reisner’s classic Cadillac Desert.”
“Glennon offers a dozen examples from around the country, each chapter a gem that moves the story beyond the arcane world of water law, politics, and the physics of centrifugal pumps–and frequently takes it straight to the reader’s stomach…But the book is just as much about the search for solutions, and Glennon rounds it out with a battery of thought-provoking suggestions about what we might do differently in the future–instead of just turning to a bigger pump.”
–High Country News
“His breezy style renders the subject far less arcane and technical than it might sound…[A]n array of informative stories that should contribute to shaking us out of what Glennon calls ‘the unlimited human capacity to ignore reality.’”
–The Washington Post
“Regardless of one’s political or environmental leanings, this book is a wake-up call that all citizens will ignore at their own risk.”
–The Oklahoma Observer
“To … Glennon, the names Perrier and Poland pack a fearful punch, for they and the other huge producers of bottled water are feeding a craze that puts the environment on the brink of disaster.”
“…a lively account of hydrology…”
–Bill McKibben, New York Review of Books
“The deleterious effects that supersize portions pose to human health have been well documented. Now to the list of obesity, heart disease, and bad skin we can add a new evil: wasted water…Water Follies…shows how each revolution in fry uniformity has come at an ecological cost.”
