In eight slides or less, Wired.com sums up the water crisis. The hypothetical presentation, created by Wired, showcases the research of Dr. Peter Gleick of the Pacific Institute and provides the next president with a roadmap to the worldwide freshwater crisis.
In the PowerPoint, Wired — channeling Gleick — illustrates problems such as mismanagement, expensive drought-alleviation budgets, insecure water supplies, international security concerns, inadequate access, and preventable water-related death and disease. It suggests taking water politics more seriously and includes ideas on how to incorporate water in government.
