Ethical Water Learning to Value What Matters Most An RMB Manifesto by Robert William Sandford by Merrell-Ann Phare Release Date: 15/10/2011 ISBN 9781926855707 4.75 x 7 inches 168 pages hardcover $16.95 (CAD)
Fresh water is essential to both the ever-expanding human population and the ever-threatened natural landscapes that surround us. And yet, society seems to continually ignore the need for a common-sense approach to—and appreciation of—our freshwater resources and our consumption of this remarkable, life-giving substance that now exceeds its future availability.
This ground-breaking and approachable work, by two of Canada’s most authoritative experts on water issues, redefines our relationship with fresh water and outlines the steps we as a society will have to take if we wish to ensure the sustainability of our water supply for future generations.
I am grateful that Sandford and Phare are fighting for a better Canada on our behalf. The very fact that Ethical Water takes a principled stance is downright refreshing. Reading it with an open mind will probably make you a better person, and there’s no higher test of the value of a book.—Kyrke Gaudreau, Alternatives Journal
Within the deep blue covers of Ethical Water flow a clear image of why the current Western World's view on how to manage water is profoundly unsustainable, all capped with a sensible, concise prescription for a vital solution.—Lynn Martel, Rocky Mountain Outlook
