VIDEOS: The future of water conference online

The full videos of “Cloudy with a chance of solutions: the future of water” conference held at the Radcliffe Institute at Harvard are now available on youtube. There are some excellent talks; some frightening details; some inspiring ideas. The list of speakers and talk titles can be found here. For the most part each youtube segment has two, sometimes three speakers, so you may need to fast forward if you don’t have time to view them all. I’ve also embedded them in order (I hope) below.

I hate to do this, because the entire day was excellent, but if I had to pick just one or two that really stood out I would recommend the talk by Patricia Hunt on environmental contaminants and reproductive health and the talk by Charles Tyler on endocrine disruptors and other emerging contaminants.
