Water is for Fighting Over and Other Myths about Water in the West
In this recording sponsored by Island Press and SSF, John Fleck, author of Water is for Fighting Over, and Director of the University of New Mexico's Water Resources Program, argues that the talk of impending doom from water shortages is not only untrue, but dangerous. When people get scared, they fight for the last drop of water; but when they actually have less, they use less.
John is joined by Sharon Megdal, Director of The University of Arizona's Water Resources Research Center and C.W. and Modene Neely Endowed Professor and Jay Lund Director of the The Center for Watershed Sciences at UC Davis.
