I heart Robert Glennon

Posted on | July 16, 2009 | No Comments

From the king of water bloggers Aquadoc of WaterWired, this on Robert Glennon, a groovy enough water guy to make it to the Daily Show …. (to watch last night’s episode, click here)

Review: Robert Glennon’s ‘Unquenchable’

Robert GWater-follies-tradepaperlennon, inveterate Boston Red Sox fan that he is, has hit another home run. His first one came inGlennon book the form of Water Follies: Groundwater Pumping and the Fate of America’s Fresh Waters.But now he has topped that with Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What to Do About It.

Shill alert #1: Before providing my review I must confess that I am a huge fan of Glennon’s. I’ve seen his Water Follies talk four times. Two of those times I invited him. I never get tired of hearing him. He is an excellent, entertaining speaker with an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject.  And anyone who begins a chapter (7) with a line from a Doobie Brothers’ song has my vote.
