Big Bottled Water Battle: Ian James Part 1

Guest Ian James is a reporter with the Arizona Republic newspaper in Phoenix.

He and host Jay Famiglietti reflect on their roles in the big bottled water battle that gripped California in 2015 as Nestle Waters North America refused to stop drawing water from a national forest during a drought.

Ian shares a harrowing story about violence against small farmers in Peru who were seeing large farm companies running water pipes through their area, all while they were seeing their water levels drop.
