    John R. Fleck, Director of the University of New Mexico's Water Resources Program, argues in his new book that the 'water is for fighting over' mantra is actually a myth in the western U.S. When people have less water, they actually use less water. Using the over-allocated Colorado River as an example, Fleck shows that collaboration and cooperation among the seven basin states is far more prevalent than the media accounts would have us believe. He weaves a compelling tale, one that will have us more carefully scrutinize the 'Western water wars' headlines that are all too common today. Click here for more information.
