Heart of Dryness: How the Kalahari Bushmen Can Help California Endure the Coming Permanent Drought

James Workman, Water Resources Consultant; Author, Heart of Dryness

In the central Kalahari Desert, a quiet crisis and struggle for survival foreshadows the permanent global drought to come. The besieged indigenous Bushmen of Botswana use voluntary survival strategies, while the government enforces regulatory rule. Worldwide, two in three thirsty humans will soon endure shortages. Workman describes timeless and pragmatic coping strategies for our drier future.
