Tonight, one of PNM’s newest volunteers, Kai Brito, takes our listeners into his first journey into science reporting. He leads the audience down the path of discovery about the topic of the show – water. He starts the journey by discussing the Great Lakes Compact and then leads us to the petition by Waukesha to divert water from the Great Lakes. The reason for this is the unique condition of the Waukesha groundwater aquifer and its radium contamination. Among Kai’s guests include Jennifer Caddick of the Alliance for the Great Lakes, Peter Annin, Northland College, and Ezra Meyer and Elizabeth Wheeler, both with Clean Wisconsin.
