"Are Water Wars Inevitable"   
 Dr.  Richard Schuhmann
. Penn State University

Dr. Schuhmann will explore how climate change, the greatest environmental challenge of our time, may affect our global fresh water resources and will ask how we as a species will respond. What will we do as populations increase and regional water resources decrease? Is our inability to exercise the moral courage necessary to change course now an indication of how we might behave in the future? Is conflict inevitable? Are water wars on the horizon?

Schuhmann joined the Civil & Environmental Engineering faculty at Penn State University in 1998 and is currently the Walter L. Robb Director of Engineering Leadership Development. For almost two decades he has been active as an environmental engineer in both local and international water resource projects.
