THIRST FOR POWER will leave you in awe of human ingenuity and our mastery over water. Inspired by his book of the same name, author and scientist Dr. Michael E. Webber shows us the true power of water to bring life to civilizations or send them into despair in its absence. From Roman aqueducts in the south of France to modern energy and water distribution systems, you will gasp at the mechanical behemoths that give us the luxury of household tap water. But is there hope for keeping this foundation strong as climate change exacerbates its vulnerabilities?
