Jacques Leslie discusses his book, “Deep Water.” He begins by explaining how the book examines dams and their consequences in three places: India, South Africa and Australia. Leslie discusses in detail his experiences with Indian activist, Medha Patkar, who planned to drown herself to protest the Sardar Sarovar dam's displacement of several hundred thousand people. He goes on to offer explanations of how dams cause aridity, erosion, extinction, and pollution. Also in this interview Leslie discusses issues concerning Las Vegas, California, and the Hoover Dam.
