CAMPAIGN: Sea Change Radio Sustainability Innovators

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

An issue that didn't come up in Monday's presidential debate, and unfortunately may not show up in subsequent debates either, is, "What are the candidates' water policies?" It is one of the most vital issues for all Americans, and for the globe, and yet it is almost never mentioned on the national political debate stage. But if you look for them, you'll find that each of the two major party candidates for president do have positions on water -- well, one has actual proposals, and the other one has a set of ill-conceived opinions that could theoretically inform policy. This week on Sea Change Radio, we hear from the Washington correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, Carolyn Lochhead, to compare Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on water. We will discuss the preposterous supposition advanced by one candidate that the California drought is just a figment of our collective imaginations ginned up by liberals, the idea that it is wasteful to allow rivers to flow to the sea, and Clinton's vision for collaborative stewardship. Stay tuned as we dive deep into the politics of water.
