Water: The Oil of the Twenty-First Century?

This conversation between an environmental scientist, a petroleum geologist, and a professor of Russian and Eurasian studies explores the ecological and economic relationship between oil and water and the significance of each as (re)sources of power in the twenty-first century. How are oceans part of a larger system that affects access, production, and the meaning of oil and water? How do the politics and culture of a region like the former Soviet Union affect the global exchange of oil and water? How are attitudes toward oil as a source of energy shifting, as water becomes the resource of conflict and energy production?
