Earth's Bounty: America's Water Crisis and Agriculture

Meat, watermelon, rice, and other foods require a lot of water to grow. And water is becoming scarce in major growing areas. That could increase demand for foods grown in our region. These ideas are explored in the new book Not A Drop to Drink: America's Water Crisis [And What You Can Do]. The author, Ken Midkiff, is on the Board of Directors of Concerned Citizens for Clean Water and is co-chair of the National Clean Water Network. He recently spoke with The Allegheny Front's Jennifer Szweda Jordan. It's part of our Earth's Bounty series on food and the environment.
