Is the United State experiencing a water crisis? Are we wasting vast amounts of water in the way we dispose of human wastes? Should we figure out a way for people to buy and sell the right to use water? And should we have a national tax on water?
Robert Glennon, a University of Arizona law professor who has written two engaging and provocative books on water, answers a resounding “yes” to each of those questions.
You will want to hear Glennon when he speaks Feb. 22 in lecture sponsored by the Freshwater Society and the University of Minnesota’s College of Biological Sciences as part of 2010 – The Year of Water. The event will be at 7 p.m. in the University of Minnesota’s St. Paul Student Center Theater.
Glennon’s lecture is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, click here.
