Each month, GRCC gets new streaming videos in our Academic Video Online VAST database from Alexander Street Press. Click here for a complete list of this month’s additions. River’s End: California’s Latest Water War, the title highlighted this month, while about the California Water Crisis, will inform Michigan and other Great Lakes residents about this important political, environmental, economic, public health, and social challenge.
“River’s End explores the global water crisis, using California as a microcosm. It shows how water politics that led to the draining of the Owens Valley by Los Angeles, made famous by the film Chinatown, continue to this day in ongoing efforts to take ever more water from Northern California’s San Francisco Bay estuary. Except this time, the water grab is at the hands of industrial agriculture and its powerful corporate investors. River’s End inspires viewers to learn where their water comes from so that we can save our rivers and the ecosystems and communities that depend upon them.”
