Last Call at the Oasis

November 24, 2012
In Deep with Angie Coiro
Hour 1

Academy Award winning director Jessica Yu talks to Angie about her documentary "Last Call at the Oasis" and how to spread the word about water conservation without raising panic. Water specialist Peter Gleick of the Pacific Institute joins Angie in studio for a discussion about the bottled water phenomenon, how prepared water treatment plants are to handle contaminants and if extreme weather can really be tied to climate change.

And Anat Shenker-Osorio unpacks the language surrounding the Hostess shutdown and the way unions and laborers are linguistically portrayed.
