February 13th, 2014 Historic Overview

Panelists will look into human habitation and water use in the American Southwest. They will address issues including global warming, climate instability, and the lasting effects of Manifest Destiny on indigenous cultures and southwestern habitat. They will also address the limitations to capitalism in a world of finite resources, and the relationship between water, coal and hydro-electricity, and associated factors. The three panelists are: historian and author Dr. William deBuys; author and Director of the Center for the American West Dr. Patty Limerick; and author, photographer and polemicist John Nichols.
