Water in the Time of Climate Change and Overpopulation

Wed. 6/22 at 830am: We explore a myriad of rivers in southwestern Colorado, which are indispensable to ecosystems, agriculture, municipalities, and the industrial sector. While each drop is already accounted for, a newly named phenomenon, climate change, threatens to make demands of its own.

Today we'll examine our current knowledge of and reliance on water. As the changing land and waterscape becomes our new reality, perhaps we can reexamine how we look at the rivers that we all depend on for our survival.
