In a book hailed by Publishers Weekly as a "passionate plea for access to water activism,” Blue Covenant addresses an environmental crisis that--together with global warming--poses one of the gravest threats to our survival. How did the world’s most vital resource become imperiled? And what must we do to pull back from the brink? In "stark and nearly devastating prose” (Booklist), world-renowned activist and bestselling author Maude Barlow--who is featured in the acclaimed documentary Flow--discusses the state of the world’s water. Barlow examines how water companies are reaping vast profits from declining supplies, and how ordinary people from around the world have banded together to reclaim the public’s right to clean water, creating a grassroots global water justice movement. While tracing the history of international battles for the right to water, she documents the life-and-death stakes involved in the fight and lays out the actions that we as global citizens must take to secure a water-just world for all. As people around the world turn their attention to the effects of climate change, Blue Covenant is a timely and important reminder for us to take heed of the global water crisis’s impact on humans and the natural world.

In her bestselling books Blue Gold and Blue Covenant, world-renowned water activist Maude Barlow exposed the battle for ownership of our dwindling water supply and the emergence of an international, grassroots-led movement to reclaim water as a public good. Since then, the United Nations has recognized access to water as a basic human right—but there is still much work to be done to stem this growing crisis. In this major new book, Barlow draws on her extensive experience and insight to lay out a set of key principles that show the way forward to what she calls a “water-secure and water-just world.” Not only does she reveal the powerful players even now impeding the recognition of the human right to water, she argues that water must not become a commodity to be bought and sold on the open market. Focusing on solutions, she includes stories of struggle and resistance from marginalized communities, as well as government policies that work for both people and the planet. At a time when climate change has moved to the top of the national agenda and when the stage is being set for unprecedented drought, mass starvation, and the migration of millions of refugees in search of water, Blue Future is an urgent call to preserve our most valuable resource for generations to come.

International tensions around water are rising in many of the world's most volatile regions. The policy recipe pursued by the West, and imposed on governments elsewhere, is to pass control over water to private interests, which simply accelerates the cycle of inequality and deprivation. California, as well as China, South Africa, Mexico and countries on every continent already face a crisis. This book exposes the enormity of the problem, the dangers of the proposed solution and the alternative, which is to recognize access to water as a fundamental human right, not dependent on ability to pay.

Alien Covenant: Genesis I explores the idea of ancient astronauts - humanoid aliens who came to Earth a long time ago and created safe havens and mankind. It presents a different story of creation, with an imaginative account of how the solar system came to be. As astronauts on a mission, God, Satan and the angels come alive in this revealing adaptation of the banned story of Adam and Eve, where lords and ladies require mono-atomic gold powder for everlasting life. A foreign legion of dragon-dog angels from the Planet of Fates, farming in the Garden of Eden and mining nearby, strike against God, who replaces them with hew-brutes and a hew-man called Adam. But Adam and his helper, Eve, mate against God's law and are expelled into the wilderness. Is this part of God's plan to lead his mission in a new direction? What are the Ancient Mysteries all about? Some may label this book as heresy, even blasphemy, but others who reason will smile at the cleverly suggested origins of names, stories, objects and customs from around the world. While in eighth grade at Catholic school, James Hansen questioned supernaturalism, especially miracles in The Holy Bible. He asked his teacher, "How come the miracles that happened thousands of years ago do not happen today?" Her answer - "It is a mystery." - has been stuck in his mind ever since. James has researched mythology, religion, science and ancient astronauts for more than 40 years. He graduated from Oregon State University and attended graduate school at Harvard. Hansen lived in England for 10 years and has visited 22 countries, working for 24 years as a civil engineering assistant in the U.S. Air Force, retiring as a master sergeant. A recent lymphoma survivor, he lives in Oregon with his wife. Alien Covenant: Genesis I is his first book.
