‘Wired Science’ program features Arizona

Technology, Television

The newsmagazine program Wired Science airs 8 p.m. Wednesday Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. on the Valley’s PBS affiliate, KAET-TV (Channel 8). This week’s segment, “Peak Water,” will feature an Arizona issue that should concern all of us. PBS provides this description:

You might be familiar with the phrase “peak oil”—that’s the idea that oil, a finite resource, is running out. But there’s another impending crisis, one that all the Prius drivers in the world can’t stop: “peak water.” Water’s a disappearing commodity too and nowhere more so than in the American southwest. Wired Science visits Arizona and Nevada to see how the driest communities in the country are simultaneously managing a desert population explosion and ever scarce water supplies.
