Program Description:

Water defines us as Floridians no matter where we live: Idyllic beaches surround us on three sides. Rivers and streams flow for ten thousand miles through the peninsula. We’re blessed with nearly eight thousand lakes and a thousand more freshwater springs – the largest concentration of artesian springs in the world. Florida’s economy and idyllic lifestyle are built on a foundation of pure and plentiful water. Yet, for the first time in state history, the latest generation of Floridians has not inherited waters as clean and abundant as when they were born. In her uplifting program Blue Revolution: A Water Ethic for Florida, journalist Cynthia Barnett shows audiences how one of the most water-rich states in the nation could come to face water scarcity and quality woes – and how it doesn’t have to be this way.
