On Earth Day 2014, you can learn about one of the most important emerging issues of our time - "unsustainable water demand" - and what you can do about it. Find out how climate change threatens our energy supply and if the lights could go out if the rivers run dry. On Tuesday, April 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Hatch D Ballroom in the Student Union Building, 1700 University Drive at Boise State University, climate-water-energy expert Wendy Wilson, executive director of Advocates for the West and co-author of "Burning Our Rivers: The Waterfootprint of Electricity," will explain the link between energy and water, and the opportunities for shifting our national energy and water policy.
This free community program is sponsored by Snake River Alliance, Idaho Rivers United and Boise State University's Sustainable Club, with support from the Sierra Club, Idaho Conservation League and Advocates for the West. Attendees will be invited to receive further training to meet with Idaho's congressional delegation in May.
