Scientist Seth Darling looks at an endangered vital resource: fresh water. He surveys society's water policies and the probable disastrous results of failing to change them.
This week, in Part 2, Darling accentuates the positive. He discusses advances in water-purification technology ... some cutting-edge science at the Argonne National Laboratory ... and the huge--and successful--water projects in Chicago over the past 130 years.
Plus a song on pollution by Tom Lehrer (1965).
Darling is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Argonne National Laboratory. He spoke in Chicago on May 18, 2016. The original recording was provided by Dale Lehman of radio station WZRD (thanks!). I have slightly edited and condensed the talk for radio broadcast.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "thumb") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
