Buzz Thompson, founding director of the Stanford Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program, will speak at Laguna Blanca School at 4 p.m. Monday in Spaulding Auditorium.
His talk, “Water as a Public Commodity,” will begin with an overview of the major water challenges confronting California and the world today, including shrinking water supplies, loss of critical fish habitat, groundwater over-drafting, and a large percent of the world’s population without adequate drinking water supplies.
The talk will then look at three “visions” for how to address these water challenges:
» Water as a public trust
» Water as a human right
» Water as a commodity
Please join us to hear one of the world’s leading environmental experts share his views on this critical issue of the 21st century.
