An agument for the importance of equity as a criterion in evaluating water policy, with examples in wide-ranging case studies from North and South America and Europe.
Many predict that by the end of this century water will dominate world natural resources politics as oil does today. Access to water is widely regarded as a basic human right, and was declared so by the United Nations in 1992. And yet the water crisis grows: although the total volume of water on the planet may be sufficient for our needs, much of it is misallocated, wasted, or polluted, and the poorest of the poor live in arid areas where water is scarce. The coming decade will require new perspectives on water resources and reconsideration of the principles of water governance and policy. Water, Place, and Equity argues that fairness in the allocation of water will be a cornerstone to a more equitable ands secure future for humankind. With analyses and case studies, it demonstrates that considerations of equity are more important in formulating and evaluating water policy than the more commonly invoked notions of efficiency and markets. The case studies through which the book explores issues of water equity range from cost and benefit disparities that result from Southern California's storm water runoff policies to the privatization of water in Bolivia. In a final chapter, Water, Place, and Equity considers broader concerns -- the impact of global climate change on water resources and better ways to incorporate equity into future water policy.

Yesterday I read an article entitled “12 Reasons to Date a Woman Who Reads. ” It was an excellent piece written by Nina Bahadur for Huffington Post: Women. Although written for men, it easily and accurately describes the reasons for dating anyone who reads. Some years ago, I dabbled briefly in online dating — while waiting for Ashley to appear — and always asked the women in those initial messages what they were reading. I’m going to borrow two of those 12 reasons from Nina Bahadur’s article: 1. He/she is empathetic. I know people who read, or at least claim they do, who aren’t either of these things. And then it should be said that not all reading is worthy reading. It’s unlikely that the reading of mindless novels of smutty and characterless behavior (I’m thinking of books like “Fifty Shades of Grey”), or romance novels, with unrealistic plots and even more unrealistic people, is contributing much to the... (Nothing against those smutty “for the beach” novels, but if that’s the bulk of someone’s reading, it shouldn’t be expected to make much of an improvement in that person’s life. ) So, a book’s popularity or sales figures don’t, by themselves, make them commendable. Reading puts you into the lives, motivations, internal struggles, and personal histories of another person. There’s no greater way to learn to give others the benefit of the doubt and to forgive them than by reading novels and historical fiction that requires you to identify with another person on an intimate level. It’s what good movies are made of. It’s what the 2005 movie “Crash” did. It’s what the television show “24” was made of. You knew why a person did or said the things that they did and you understood them. Reading, even more so than movies and television, places you into that other person’s shoes, into that other person’s life on such a deep emotional and cerebral level that you can’t avoid being drawn into the more meaningful motivations and... Good reading exposes you to the necessity of critical thinking. Good reading requires you to ask “who, what, when, where, why, and how. ” Reading makes you ask if something is it true or factual. It also makes you more skeptical and less inclined to accept things just because someone says so. “Because I said so” was an acceptable answer from a parent or.
