Sand Wars is a surprising investigation into one of the most consumed natural resources on the planet. The planet's sand reserves are being threatened. Three-quarters of the world's beaches are in decline as victims of erosion or "sand mafias". But what will be the consequences of sand extraction on the environment and life on the planet? Sand Wars takes us around the world to witness this new gold rush firsthand.

Astonishing revelation

Comments about PBS Sand Wars DVD:

Because desert sand grains are too old and round, it is not structurally equal to the angular characteristics of ocean, beach, river or lake sand.

Unbelievably, there is now a sand mafia due to a worldwide shortage of acceptable
concrete, construction sand.

Don't live in an apartment building built with desert sand or other high-rise concrete construction built with desert sand. Remember the 1,000 or so garment workers that died a couple of years ago in Bangladesh when their 10 story factory collapsed ?

This DVD is rarely, if ever, shown even on PBS TV stations so as not to risk offending realty and construction company sponsors. This was an eye opener for me.
