Meeting at Traverse City main library: Carl Ganter–“Water’s Future: Around the Globe with Circle of Blue”
7 p.m….610 Woodmere Ave., Traverse City
Join the Grand Traverse Humanists and Circle of Blue director J. Carl Ganter for a captivating journey around the world to the front lines of the most important story of our era: Water. A defining period of global competition for increasingly scarce resources is fast emerging, particularly at the intersection of water, food, and energy. Circle of Blue, based in Traverse City, is the world’s leading news and science organization reporting this increasingly intense competition, from the coal mines of Inner Mongolia to California’s Drought to the shores of Lake Erie where toxic algae blooms shutdown Toledo’s water supply last summer. Ganter, an award-winning photojournalist and journalist, will provide insight about today’s challenges… and a glimpse into water’s future.
