Covering Water in the West
November 2, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for a conversation hosted by Stanford’s Water in the West program with expert journalists exploring the complexity, history, politics and science surrounding water in the Western U.S. in a changing climate. Conflicts over water in the arid west are nothing new but rising temperatures, drought, reduced snowpack, and changing precipitation patterns are introducing new hurdles as states attempt to plan for a sustainable water future. Journalists covering water scarcity and water quality issues in the West hold a special role in explaining to the public the gravity of the situation on the ground, informing communities on the stakes of major decisions and continued drought. At this webinar, a panel of journalists seasoned in water coverage will discuss their careers, pressing issues in the water space, and where they see the story going.
