Ep 31 Water is Life

March 16, 2018

Mni Wiconi, which is Lakota for #WaterisLife. In Episode 31, we talk about the politics, economics, and practical considerations around earth's greatest resource, water. (And thank you to all #indigenous #waterprotectors.) The Trumpster Fire is all about Trump's impact on the Waters of the US rule and our Clean Water Act. Our newest segment, Fierce Woman Warrior, is a brief profile on an amazing woman who is actively working to change her community. Our Fierce Woman Warrior this episode is environmental activist Dr. Vandanava Shiva, author of Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit. Our Media Minute asks you to watch the BBC nature documentary mini-series, Blue Planet 2. And finally, our Activist Action asks you to reconsider your use of bottled water.
