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. If you are inter­est­ed in going back to school use studentservicesdepartment.com for help in choos­ing the best school for your needs.
