Blue Revolution: Unmaking America's water crisis10/05/11 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Coming up weâ€™ll talk about the coming water crisis in the US with author Cynthia Barnett. But first two listener comments about yesterdayâ€™s programs. We received calls about the interview with the activists for St. Pete for Peace and weâ€™ll hear a comment about yesterdayâ€™s Last Call show and the Republican candidates for President.
Our guest today is Cynthia Barnett author of a new book called BLUE REVOLUTION: UNMAKING AMERICAS WATER CRISIS (Beacon). Barnett says that our major sources of fresh water are drying up or being depleted. She says the old solutions of dams and reservoirs arenâ€™t working and that unless we develop a new ethic for water usage we could see widespread shortages in the next few years.
