Quenching ‘The Big Thirst’
Charles Fishman has been named the keynote speaker for the 2013 NGWA Summit — The National and International Conference on Groundwater taking place April 28-May 2, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas.
Fishman, an award-winning reporter who has spent the last several years trying to understand water issues around the world, is the New York Times bestselling author of the book, The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water. Focusing on society’s relationship with water, his message is cautionary, but optimistic — there is still no reason for a global water crisis as there is more than enough water…it just has to be used smartly.
Since The Big Thirst was published, Fishman has spoken about water issues at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Michigan, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the U.S. State Department. He also recently penned a thought-provoking op-ed article on the current drought encompassing much of the United States.
Book signing: Charles Fishman will be signing books on April 29 from 12:00-2:00 p.m following his presentation.
