Waterlife : five Great Lakes, one last chance = L'eau c'est la vie( Visual )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Waterlife follows the epic cascade of the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. From the icy cliffs of Lake Superior to the ornate fountains of Chicago to the sewers of Windsor, this feature-length documentary tells the story of the last huge supply (20 per cent) of fresh water on Earth. The source of drinking water, fish and emotional sustenance for 35 million people, the Great Lakes are under assault by toxins, sewage, invasive species [zebra mussels, Asian carp, and lampreys], dropping water levels and profound apathy. Some scientists believe the lakes are on the verge of ecological collapse. Filled with fascinating characters and stunning imagery, Waterlife is an epic cinematic poem about the beauty of water and the dangers of taking it for granted."--Primitive Entertainment web site
