Thirst for Power
USA, 2019, 63 min.
Water is life. It is crucial to survival, a successful civilization, and in the modern era, the ability to make energy. That means that water is vulnerable when energy is in short supply, and energy is vulnerable when water is in short supply. Thirst for Power, which is based on the book by Dr. Michael E. Webber, explores humanity’s long relationship with water, tracing the connection between water and energy through history. From the ruins of Roman aqueducts to the mountains of California and the vast deserts of Texas, the film explores innovations and lessons about this precious resource that we would be wise to learn from.
