Water—and Climate—Solutions in Plain Sight
The Arnold Arboretum welcomes Judith D. Schwartz, journalist and author, who has looked deeply into the challenges and solutions around Earth’s soil in her 2013 book, Cows Save the Planet, has since turned her sights towards water. In this talk and discussion, she will focus on reframing our global environmental challenges in a way that illuminates potential solutions. For once we broaden our perspective to include how water moves across the landscape and through the atmosphere, we’ll find many opportunities to restore ecological cycles, even entire ecosystems. Judith will offer examples from around the world that she’s encountered in her reporting for her newest book, Water in Plain Sight: Hope for a Thirsty World.
