The West Without Water
Thursday, May 7 | 7-9 p.m. | Kamangar Center, Merced Theater, 301 W. Main St., Merced
UC Berkeley geography professors Lynn Ingram and Frances Malamud-Roam’s talk is based on their book "The West Without Water," which contextualizes California’s water concerns in its overall climate history.
The authors tell the story of the American West’s climate detectives, punctuating their survey with accounts of the region’s great droughts, floods and other challenges its people have faced over thousands of years. In questioning what constitutes normal climate in the West, the authors show that while we might have temporarily buffered ourselves from harsh climatic swings by building dams and reservoirs and making other changes to the natural landscape, we might be unprepared for the effects of climate changes that are occurring now and could continue for hundreds of years into the future.
