Blue Revolution: A Water Ethic for Florida
April 23, 2019
In her program, Blue Revolution: A Water Ethic for Florida, Cynthia Barnett will show how one of the most water-rich states in the nation could come to face water scarcity and quality woes — and how it doesn’t have to be this way. She is the author of three acclaimed books on water: Mirage: Florida and the Vanishing Water of the Eastern U.S., Blue Revolution: Unmaking America’s Water Crisis, and Rain. Blue Revolution was named one of the top 10 science books of 2011 by The Boston Globe, who has called Barnett “part journalist, part mom, part historian and part optimist.”
With support from a Florida Humanities Council grant awarded to Pensacola State College, WSRE Public Square is presenting public talks by four notable Floridians: Jeff Klinkenberg (8/28/18), Jack E. Davis (2/5/19), Ersula Knox-Odom (3/5/19) and Cynthia Barnett (4/23/19).
The Florida Humanities Council partners with community organizations around the state. Support for the Florida Humanities Speaker Series is provided by the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.
