Fred Pearce FRSGS: When the Rivers Run Dry (GLASGOW)

20th March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The world is running out of water. Even in the UK, reservoirs empty and there are drought warnings and hosepipe bans each year. Water is ‘the new oil’ – except we can live without oil; there are no alternatives to fresh water. In this updated talk, Fred explores what has gone wrong with the world’s rivers and why water is emerging as the defining environmental crisis of the 21st century.

Tickets can be reserved via the Eventbrite website – please follow the link below. For most talks, tickets will also be available on the night, on the door. If booking a Tiso or RSGS member ticket please be sure to bring your card(s) along.  Thank you.
