Unquenchable: Univ. of AZ prof. on Daily Show with Jon Stewart
The blog is beginning to feel like a string of announcements of media appearances by professors, but this is fun (and, serious at the same time). Last Thursday, Jon Stewart’s guest was U of A professor Robert Glennon, who spoke about his book on the water-supply crisis… Make sure to check out Jon Stewart’s ingenious ideas on how to solve water-supply problems!
My favorite quotes: JS: “Should we be mad at you for living in AZ?” … RG: “That’s in Phoenix!”
As always, I want to mention that operations research has a lot to offer on this topic. For instance, I have been collaborating with some folks who know a lot more about hydraulics than I ever will on using operations research methods to efficiently use and re-use water.
