Host Jim O’Donnell talks with John Fleck, Director of the University of New Mexico Water Resources Program and Eric Kuhn, self-described “Colorado River nerd” about their new book “Science be Dammed: How Ignoring Inconvenient Science Drained the Colorado River” and how the realities of water in the American West run up against the hopes and dreams of developers and land managers. “Science Be Dammed” is an alarming reminder of the high stakes in the management—and perils in the mismanagement—of water in the western United States.
This episode was recorded at the studios of Taos Sound and Media in Taos, New Mexico in June, 2020. Produced by Jim O’Donnell. Recorded and edited by Brett Tomadin of Taos Sound and Media (www.taossound.com/)
