Robert Glennon is the go-to resource for any group that wants to understand why protecting our water supply is as much an economic issue as an environmental one.

With his deep grasp of the scientific, historical, economic, and legal issues associated with America's water predicament, Robert gives audiences a comprehensive understanding of why a water shortage is imminent and what it will take to save the country's dwindling supply.

Robert expertly captured the tragedy and irony of the water crisis in his New York Times best-selling book Unquenchable and the highly-acclaimed Water Follies: Groundwater Pumping and the Fate of America's Fresh Waters.

On stage, he offers the same honest and urgent appraisal of the country's challenges, while stressing the importance of technology and innovative thinking to solving the problem. With detailed, actionable suggestions, he lays out an attainable vision for a sustainable water future.

Robert's gift for telling the broader story about water quenches the longing among audience members to identify their role in contributing to this growing cause of concern.

Seating is first come, first served. Doors open at 6 p.m.
