Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What To Do About It
ELI hosted a panel discussion featuring Robert Glennon, author of Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What To Do About It (April 2009). In Unquenchable, he captures the tragedy and irony of water in America, revealing the heady extravagances and everyday waste that are sucking the nation dry. He argues that we cannot engineer our way out of the problem with the usual fixes. America must make hard choices and Glennon’s answer is a provocative market-based system that values water as a commodity and a fundamental human right. He is the Morris K. Udall Professor of Law and Public Policy in the Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona, and author of Water Follies and many essays.
