Project Censored – June 26, 2015

In light of the historic California drought and a global water crisis, Peter and Mickey devote this week’s program to a look at water issues. First, investigative journalists Katharine Mieskowski and Lance Willliams explain how some water usage data is being kept away from journalists and the public. Then spoken-word artist Nick George offers a poem about water, power and money. In the second half of the program, Project Censored researcher Steven Feher shares what he’s uncovered about ground water contamination from fracking. Finally, author Kirk Hylan explores the possible benefits of advanced desalination technology.
