The final book in Maude Barlow's Blue trilogy, "Blue Future" is a powerful, penetrating, and timely look at the global water crisis - and what we can do to prevent it. The global water crisis has dramatically deepened. The stage is being set for drought on an unprecedented scale, mass starvation, and the migration of millions of refugees leaving parched lands in search of water. The story does not need to end in tragedy. Includes inspiring stories of struggle and resistance from marginalized communities, as well as examples of government policies that work for people and the planet.

Maude Barlow is my hero! With little to be proud of these days as Canadians, she is a shining light. She is sought after the world over for lectures and consultation, and been an advisor to the UN. This is an important book on a lot of levels. We are so pressed with so many issues that need our attention these days, that some just give up being overwhelmed. As far as I can see there are two issues that must be held as imperative, democracy and water. Everything else smart, hard working people can take on for themselves. Without those two, we don't stand a chance.

What is happening to our world's global water supply? Is it a human right or a commodity on the open market? Maude Barlow delves into these questions in a most provocative manner.
