Siegel Ry made of desert Israel has not only solved its water problem; it also had an abundance of water Israel even supplies water to its neighbors the Palestinians and the Kingdom of Jordan every dayBased on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews Let There Be Water reveals the methods and techniues of the often offbeat inventors who enabled Israel to lead the world in cutting edge water technologyLet There Be Water also tells unknown stories of how cooperation on water systems can forge diplomatic ties and promote unity Remarkably not long ago now hostile Iran relied on Israel to manage its water systems and access to Isr. Siegel here approaches the hugely important topic of efficient water management through the case of Israeli policy Israel s successes in this regard are compelling and significant so that seems promising enough Yet the resulting work has turned into an extended glossy pamphlet relentlessly chirpy boosterish and superficial The number of things that are described as revolutionary is almost comical with the seemingly obvious attempt to exploit brackish water resources in a desert somehow even doubling up to be counterintuitive and revolutionary few of the policies have any drawbacks mentioned and interviewees regularly spout solilouies that read like advertising copy On the rare occasions when a difficulty is encountered it is breezily dispensed with apparently the international officials trying to allocate water between Israel and Jordan initially gave than the Israelis hoped to Jordan but fortunately the relevant person was convinced to change the distribution in a pro Israeli way How was he convinced By whom This book won t say perhaps because dwelling on the roadblock would darken the sunny tone though the author does have the chutzpah seven chapters later to refer back to that cryptic throwaway line as having explained the situation By the time you get to a section describing the reuse of treated sewage whose header is From Waste to Wow no really that s the actual heading it s hard not to feel like you re reading something aimed at children The Little Golden Book of Israeli Water PolicyIt s too bad since the innovations Siegel describes from drip irrigation to dual flush toilets are ideas that deserve broader implementation This book isn t the place to learn seriously about their trade offs and practicalities though The superficiality makes it especially hard to take seriously the book s fan fiction about how water technology will solve pretty much every political and policy problem the world might have The Leopard Tree you get to a section describing the reuse of treated sewage whose header is From Waste to Wow no really that s the actual heading it s hard not to feel like

Siegel As every day brings urgent reports of growing water shortages around the world there is no time to lose in the search for solutionsThe US government predicts that forty of our fifty states and 60 percent of the earth's land surface will soon face alarming gaps between available water and the growing demand for it Without action food prices will rise economic growth will slow and political instability is likely to follow Let There Be Water illustrates how Israel can serve as a model for the United States and countries everywhere by showing how to blunt the worst of the coming water calamities Even with 60 percent of its count. This book is both eye opening and inspirational Being a young farmer in this age of farming where innovation drives you forward while being in constant touch with nature and your surroundings water is never far from my mind And being in the midst of the worst drought in people s memory makes water an everyday worry for us Israel has since before independence been planning ahead in their water infrastructure and has been able to make the desert bloom because of this They have also become the first nation to be independent of nature for it s water supply by not only one or two things but by a combination of many that can back each other up if one fails and by an entire nation pulling in the same direction and have thereby created a water surplus with which they can help their Arab neighbors even though this is always a challenge because of politics where ideology trumps common sense on the part of some of the neighbors Water innovations has in recent decades become a major export for Israel and has built ties through water diplomacy with countries earlier opposed to Israel and hopefully will follow especially our country South AfricaNow Israel is a small and educated nation but should serve as an example for all nations around the world as to what can be done on a bigger scale and not all the innovations that fits Israel will work in all environments but there are so many that some will help other countries This book should be read by all politicians and major role players to see how we can stave of the looming water crisis that will befall our planet in the coming years so that we can be ready to overcome it and save humanityI always like to think that we on the farm try and save as much water as possible and try to maximize our use of it but after reading this I know there are lots we can do and this is why this book is so inspiringThis is a must read for everyone as water is a world crisis
