Interview with Best Selling Author Steven Solomon
“The global scarcity of fresh water in 2012,” says author Steven Solomon, speaking on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water syndicated radio talk show on April 23, 2012, “remains the world’s most explosive humanitarian and political crisis, affecting the health, security and livelihood of billions. The United States is not exempt.”
Sharon Kleyne observed that the global water crisis tends not to be of immediate concern in much of the developed world – despite the fact that in China’s numerous mega-cities, and in rapidly growing population centers in the American Southwest, fresh water disaster is immanent.
Solomon observed that the recent “Arab Spring” revolts began in response to spiking food prices caused by fresh water scarcity. According to Solomon, population growth worldwide is outstripping agricultural production and the limiting factor is fresh water.
The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water is broadcast live on Mondays, 10 a.m., PST/PDT. The syndicated talk show is heard on Voice America/World Talk Radio, Green Talk Network and Apple iTunes.
