California faces one of its most severe droughts on record, as water scarcity is also continuing to worsen in the rest of the world. Siegel looks at some of the policies and cutting-edge water technology that have been embraced specifically in Israel, and he examines how a land that is made of 60 percent desert has become a leading world power in water technology.
As the imbalance between water supply and demand rapidly increases, the world could soon face a global crisis in energy shortages, surging food prices and economic instability. Siegel offers possible solutions for conservation development to overcome the problem of water scarcity.
