Electric Water: The Emerging Revolution in Water and Energy by Christopher C. Swan

What if it was possible to combine energy and water in such a way that would contribute to the reversal of global warming and the restoration of the planet? What if it were possible to have a better quality of life, without having to give up anything? What if that plan made such economic sense that governments and large corporations would buy into it? As it turns out, it is possible to create an energy source by using key technologies that are already available. Most cities have enough rain and sun to meet their water and energy needs, simply by using technology we already have. Building on current mainstream trends in solar energy and wind power, Electric Water offers a clear vision of how the worlds energy and water infrastructure could be transformed. The book provides: An outline of the major issues that need addressing, including global warming A fascinating explanation of key technologies in plain language A vision of business and job opportunities in restoration Real-life examples, such as the Louisiana Coastal Restoration program Websites for further information Unlike many other books on this subject, Electric Water uses accessible language to propose a workable plan for a revolutionary integration of technology and quality of life that will be of special interest to planners, engineers, and architects. Christopher C. Swan is a San Francisco designer, writer, and entrepreneur who specializes in infrastructure.
