2012 Distinguished Lecture Series on Water: The Coming Water Revolution by Charles Fishman  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Award-winning investigative journalist Charles Fishman delivers a persuasive, fascinating, and urgent primer on the history and future of water. He takes you from a factory in Vermont with water so clean it is considered poisonous, to villages in India that have 24-hour-a-day cell phone service but no water service at all. Fishman has spent the last three years circling the globe -- from Las Vegas to New Delhi -- to uncover how the world of water is changing, and what the enormous implications are for each of us, no matter where we live.

Biosketch: Charles Fishman is a former metro and national reporter for the Washington Post, and was a reporter and editor at the Orlando Sentinel and the News & Observer in Raleigh, NC. Since 1996, he has worked for the innovative business magazine Fast Company. Fishman has won numerous awards, including three times receiving UCLA's Gerald Loeb Award, the most prestigious award in business journalism.


The Series is sponsored by MSU's Environmental Science and Policy Program, Center for Water Sciences, and Michigan AgBio Research.
