Fordham faculty member: Flint water crisis is a ‘failure of governance’


The water crisis in Flint continues as government agencies scramble to supply filters and bottled water, and residents fear for their health after drinking at least one year of heavily lead-polluted water.

Several investigations have been launched and what exactly happened remains to be seen. In the meantime, Fordham’s Christiana Peppard, an assistant professor of theology, science, and ethics, the author of “Just Water: Theology, Ethics an the Global Water Crisis,” weighs in on the ethical implications of this crisis.

For more on Peppard, who also teaches in the environmental studies program at Fordham, watch this TedEd video about “Where We Get Our Fresh Water,” and this CNN piece she wrote on “The resource problem you probably haven’t heard about.”
