The Daily Show's Jon Stewart Interviews "Unquenchable" Author Robert Glennon On Water Crisis

Author Robert Glennon was the guest on Thursday night's Daily Show, discussing how Americans mistakenly use water as an infinite resource.

He points out that many proposed alternative energy sources, such a ethanol, take a tremendous amount of water to produce.

Jon Stewart suggests that maybe we can take the foot or so of water expected to be added to the sea level from global warming and drink it.
