Water is necessary for all life. earth is often referred to as the "water planet." But the world is facing unprecedented water shortages, and water pollution and distribution problems. These problems also have a tremendous impact on animal and plants, ranging from endangered species to food sources. There are also significant issues of justice regarding the cost, availability, and distribution of water. This course will examine how the United States, and other governments, are responding to these challenges. We will use the U.S. as a case study, but also look at other countries with the goal of answering this question: is the current water regime sustainable?
