Jerry Yudelson Releases ‘Water Wars’ Online
Tucson green building expert, author, water crisis guru and sustainability planning consultant, Jerry Yudelson, has released a three-part video series entitled Water Wars, based on his book, Dry Run: Preventing the Next Urban Water Crisis, which outlines the ways cities can prepare for a coming era of water scarcity throughout the U.S. and much of the world, brought about by global climate change, increasing urban populations and a growing “water footprint” from human activity.
Yudelson says, “What we are trying to accomplish with the video medium is a new way to reach large numbers of people so they can develop an understanding about how to prevent future urban water crises that have become annual events in parts of the United States.”
Yudelson has been involved with promoting the LEED green building rating system and sustainable design for more than 15 years. He is the author of 12 books on the subject of green buildings, green homes, green marketing, water conservation and sustainable development. In 2011, the US Green Building Council named him to the first class of LEED fellows.
