Water Crisis in the West: Thinking Like a Watershed

  • Kimo Theatre 421 Central Ave NW Albuquerque, NM (map)

“Thinking Like a Watershed” is a series of five presentations featuring widely recognized humanity scholars who will speak on different topics pertaining to the unique and fragile water system in the North American Southwest.

Five panel discussions led by Jack Loeffler, Author of Thinking like a Watershed Producer of Watersheds as Commons, Project Director - Lore of the Land, Inc.

In this event, Privatizing Our Water Resources, panelists Sonia Dickey, John Fleck and Mike Hamman 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.
