Water and energy are the world’s most precious resources.
In celebration of Earth Day, join KLRN Public Television and Green Spaces Alliances of South Texas for a virtual conversation about how water and energy are interconnected, how they play a critical role in our modern society (like the Texas power grid failure during Winter Storm Uri), and how you can help us manage these resources by sustaining the natural environment and enhancing urban spaces through land conservation, community engagement and education.
The conversation will begin with a sneak peek of the PBS and Amazon Prime series Power Trip: The Story of Energy, based on the book by Dr. Michael E. Webber, professor at The University of Texas at Austin and Chief Science and Technology Officer at ENGIE. Then, join Dr. Webber, Texas State Representative Gina Hinojosa, and Doug Dillow, CEO Green Spaces Alliance of South Texas, for a live Q&A session moderated by Erin Douglas, the environment reporter for the Texas Tribune.
Prior to Earth Day, we also encourage you to watch the energy and water documentary film Thirst for Power in the comfort of your home via the Paramount Theatre’s Thirst for Power virtual field trip website (which includes a downloadable study guide for middle and high school students): austintheatre.org/thirstforpower/
