Our Thirsty World: A Free National Geographic Download

A little belated something for World Water Day (yesterday): National Geographic has released a special issue that delves into the challenges facing our most essential natural resource. “Water: Our Thirsty World” will be soon available at newsstands everywhere. But, right now, you can now download a free interactive version that includes all of the print magazine content, plus lots of extra online goodies. The free download requires registration and is available only until April 2.

A great find by Maria Popova aka @brainpicker

    Is there any way for me to receive an email copy of the digital download? I missed that download deadline by quite a few days, nay help would be beyond appreciated!

    Thank you for addressing this
    important topic. Perhaps your article will help to persuade the public that
    we need to limit or reduce human population in order to safe guard the planet and the future.

    Is there any way I can still get a copy of this download ? we are a German company producing desalination units for rural areas, using solar & wind energy.
    I am very interested in getting my hands on this copy.
    Thanks for your help.

    Very interesting article. In my opinion there is plenty of water for our use, we just need to learn how to harness all of the water available. This will come as we continue to study the issue.
