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.
