After completing my book, Dry Run: Preventing the Next Urban Water Crisis, I wanted to take the research from the book and put it into a format that would reach a large number of people. As a keynote speaker, I’ve been presenting the book in a talk called “Cool Water: Preventing Urban Water Crises.” But I want to do more.
Working with Tucson-based media consultant and arts activist Jodi Netzer, I developed a series of three short videos that describe the danger of upcoming water wars throughout the world, and then show you what you can do with personal water conservation actions, through sustainable green building design, and how to be a water activist in your town or city.
In the first video, I warn about water conflicts that are likely to increase worldwide as population growth, limited water supplies and growing urbanization collide. I provide solutions for how to conserve water and what we can do to prevent the next urban water crisis wherever we live.
Watch for the other two videos to be posted here in the in coming weeks. OR check out the whole series here on my YouTube page.
