A series produced by the Illinois Humanities Council and brought to you via the Illinois Channel.

 

As gasoline prices are causing changes in lifestyles, we have yet to come to terms with the world's limited supply of oil.  We are just starting to grapple with the riddle of water.  A billion people in the world may live close to water, yet still lack access to safe drinking water.  Droughts are hitting the American South and West, but rivers are flooding our heartland.  What common or unique questions do both of these essential resources raise at a global, regional, and personal level?

 

The Illinois Humanities Council presents All Consuming: Conversations on Oil and Water, a year-long statewide series of free public programs that examine the key issues related to oil and water. For more information on this series, click here.
