June 26th, 2014 Privatizing Our Water Resources
Featuring panelists: Sonia Dickey, John Fleck, Mike Hamman

Panelists will focus on southwestern dams, hydroelectric power, inter-basin water transfers, and visibly diminishing waters in the American Southwest concomitant with rising human populations. The Central Arizona Project will be assessed as an example of political, corporate and legalistic will to provide water to develop a desert ecosystem for human habitation and economic growth. This panel will identify certain “conflicting absolutes” that stand between human beings and other fellow species that comprise the life-forms within the watersheds of the American Southwest.
