Energy and water are two of the world’s most critical resources. But, the interconnections and dependencies between the two are not often discussed. In the video below, author and award-winning Professor Dr. Michael Webber explores the question of “how can we change the way we think about water and energy to secure long-term sustainability of both previous resources?”. This talk was presented as a “Talks at Google” earlier this month and is based on the findings presented in Dr. Webber’s book “Thirst for Power: Energy, water and Human Survival” that was published earlier this year.
