Water wars are already here — here’s are two books about battles close to home

The Colorado River in the United States has been fought over for decades. As the flow of water downstream gets less and less, the users (and there are many) are fighting dirtier and dirtier. There are many sides on the issue but who wins is tending to boil down to who has the money, not which use will benefit the future of the planet or even public needs (as opposed to wants).

The first book is a study while the second is nonfiction book that’s received a review in the New Republic.
