Water Chat -- Tony Allan

I chatted recently with Tony at the airport (sorry about the background noise) about the "big flows" of virtual water among countries (a term he coined in the 1980s), how that affects national security, the negative impact of middleman market power on farmer incomes, how socialists (him) and libertarians (me) might agree on improving water management, and how water footprinting -- as a crude measure -- is inappropriate for signalling appropriate water use.

Listen to our 56 min talk [39MB MP3].
