Launa Ellison’s ‘Water Fights’ provides awareness on the alarming condition of a precious natural resource

Ismail Serageldin, World Bank Vice President, once famously prophesied the following: “If the wars of this century were fought over oil, the wars of the next century will be fought over water.” Believing this as true, self-published author Launa Ellison educates readers of the alarming water condition the world is now facing in Water Fights: What’s the Problem?, an Xlibris release.

In this book, the author identifies the various issues concerning the rapidly diminishing water resources, most of which are overlooked or ignored by society. Discussed are concerns over agricultural, industrial, commercial, and even personal misuse and excessive consumption of water. The shocking analysis and facts shared by Ellison not only open the eyes of readers, but also demand that planned action must be taken to address the situation.

“…you can help to educate others. Give speeches in your community and church. Talk to relatives and friends. Write articles for your newspapers. The power is yours. The problem is yours. Your learning mind will lead the way!,” the author encourages.

Water Fights: What’s the Problem? is one of the few books that addresses a worldwide concern.
