Blue gold : the fight to stop the corporate theft of the world's water by Maude Barlow( Book )

77 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Increasingly, transnational corporations are plotting to control the world's dwindling water supply. In England and France, where water has already been privatized, rates have soared and water shortages have been severe. The major bottled-water producers - Perrier, Evian, Naya, and now Coca-Cola and PepsiCo - are part of one of the fastest growing and least regulated industries, buying up freshwater rights and drying up crucial supplies. Maude Barlow and Tony Clarke, two of the most active opponents to this trend, show how the corporate giants act in their own interest and how, contrary to received wisdom, water only flows uphill to the wealthy, who can afford it." "The consumption of water doubles every twenty years - more than twice the rate of the increase in human population. Blue Gold captures in striking detail the forces behind the increasing depletion of the world's fresh-water, and the human and ecological impacts."--Jacket
Blue covenant : the global water crisis and the coming battle for the right to water by Maude Barlow( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scientists call them "hot stains"--The parts of the earth running out of clean, drinkable water. They now include northern China, large areas of Asia and Africa, the Middle East, Australia, the Midwestern United States, and sections of South America and Mexico. How did the world's most vital natural resource become so imperiled? And what must we do to pull back from the brink?" "Blue Covenant addresses an environmental crisis that - together with global warming - poses one of the gravest threats to our survival. Activist and author Maude Barlow has been at the forefront of international water politics, and in this book she discusses the state of the world's water, how water companies are reaping vast profits from declining supplies, and how ordinary people from around the world have banded together to reclaim the public's right to clean water, creating a grassroots global water justice movement."--Jacket
Flow for love of water by Irena Salina( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel. Interviews with scientists and activists intelligently reveal the rapidly building crisis ... begging the question: Can anyone really own water?"--Container
Blue future : protecting water for people and the planet forever by Maude Barlow( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her bestselling books Blue Gold and Blue Covenant, world-renowned water activist Maude Barlow exposed the battle for ownership of our dwindling water supply and the emergence of an international, grassroots-led movement to reclaim water as a public good. Since then, the United Nations has recognized access to water as a basic human right-but there is still much work to be done to stem this growing crisis. In this major new book, Barlow draws on her extensive experience and insight to lay out a set of key principles that show the way forward to what she calls a "water-secure and water-just world." Not only does she reveal the powerful players even now impeding the recognition of the human right to water, she argues that water must not become a commodity to be bought and sold on the open market. Focusing on solutions, she includes stories of struggle and resistance from marginalized communities, as well as government policies that work for both people and the planet. At a time when climate change has moved to the top of the national agenda and when the stage is being set for unprecedented drought, mass starvation, and the migration of millions of refugees in search of water, Blue Future is an urgent call to preserve our most valuable resource for generations to come."--Publisher information

"Water on the Table features Maude Barlow, who is considered 'an international water warrior' for her crusade to have water declared a human right...More than a portrait of an activist, [the film] presents several dramatic opposing arguments. Barlow's critics are policy and economic experts who argue that water is no different than any other resource, and that the best way to protect freshwater is to privatize it."--Container
