Water Technology and the Environment Crisis in San Diego. Featuring Steve Chapple, Founder, Intellectual Capital Media, Author, and Journalist.
We’ll start off with 30 minutes of networking over beer, wine and snacks. Then watch a short TEDx video on ways to avoid catastrophic drought. Then we’ll open up for audience questions and have discussion with Steve as the resident expert.

He writes the Intellectual Capital columns in newspapers and is a Visiting Scholar at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, as well as Executive Director of the San Diego Unified STEAM Leadership Series, and a fellow at the Samuel Lawrence Foundation.

Thank you BDO for being our gracious and convenient event host.
More on BREAKPOINT:
Eminent ecologist Jeremy B. C. Jackson and award-winning journalist Steve Chapple traveled the length of the Mississippi River interviewing farmers, fishermen, scientists, and policymakers to better understand the mounting environmental problems ravaging the United States. Along their journey, which quickly expands to California, Florida, and New York, the pair uncovered surprising and profound connections between ecological systems and environmental crises across the country. Artfully weaving together independent research and engaging storytelling, Jackson and Chapple examine the looming threats from recent hurricanes and fires, industrial agriculture, river mismanagement, extreme weather events, drought, and rising sea levels that are pushing the country toward the breaking point of ecological and economic collapse, in their new book Breakpoint: Reckoning with America’s Environmental Crises.
Yet, despite these challenges, the authors provide optimistic and practical solutions for addressing these multidimensional issues to achieve greater environmental stability, human well-being, and future economic prosperity. With a passionate call to action, they look hopefully toward emerging and achievable solutions to preserve the country’s future.
