Water expert Robert Glennon will deliver the Town Hall talk on Oct. 15 downtown at the Neville Center for the Performing Arts. Glennon speaks about the irony and tragedy of Americaís water crisis, and the heady extravagances and everyday inefficiencies that are sucking the nation dry.
Glennon argues that we must begin to treat water as a valuable, exhaustible public resource. Using an economical perspective, Mr. Glennon offers suggestions on what we can do to reclaim and conserve this finite resource and why we must look at water as both a commodity and fundamental human right.
Glennon is the author of the book Unquenchable: Americaís Water Crisis and What To Do About It.
