Vizualizing groundwater in Times Square

Jay Famiglietti (UC Irvine, Hydrology/Engineering) tells me that the displays in Times Square (NYC) will show visualizations of NASA GRACE data on groundwater depletion, starting today and running for a month.

Check out the announcement.

Although this is totally cool, I hope that people then go on to ask WHY groundwater is being depleted. Then they should contact me to discuss how policies affect groundwater levels and how the political-economic sphere is destroying the physical-environmental sphere.

  1. Perhaps a Times Square sized picture of you asking "why" would direct people to your blog.

    Failing that, the question is: HOW do we get more people asking WHY?
