About the Science
- Part of PBS Newshour's "Coping with Climate Change" series. This is about drought, which is clearly a climate change issue. Antiquated water-rights laws, a rapidly growing population, and competing water uses have made the problem even more difficult.
- Comments from expert scientist: Good overview of the 2011-20xx Texas drought and its most severe impacts on water supplies. Relatively little "scientific" content. Its mostly a news story.
About the Pedagogy
- This video is quite comprehensive and likely does not require much context from an educator. No support materials - other than the transcript and closed-captioning - are provided.
