The southwest is dependent on groundwater supplies and New Mexico investors propose to extend that dependency by pumping groundwater and transporting it to population centers in the Rio Grande Valley. Should they or shouldn't they? As we guide students to use Systems Thinking to examine this real-life and relevent issue, this third in a series employs the ST habit of alanyzing change over time and challenges you to change your perspective in order to make a well-reasoned decision: to pass or block this proposal.

New Mexico investors propose to pump groundwater and transport it to population centers in the Rio Grande Valley. Should they or shouldn't they? How can we guide students to use Systems Thinking to examine this real-life and relevent issue as they learn important core knowledge and 21st Century problem-solving and communication skills?  This second in a series employs the ST habit of examining the big picture and challenges you to analyze changes over time in order to make a well-reasoned recommendation for this important question.

Article three-point-five in our series on Systems Thinking and decision-making about groundwater pumping: though not quite ready to address the ins and outs of the habit of Changing Perspective, this re-ppost from AMWUA provides us with timely background on the issue of groundwater pumping in New Mexico's near-neighbors, Arizona and Califormia and brings into focus the emotionally-charged nature of the issue, reminding us that Changing Perspective or points of view will help us to gain the deep understanding of the issue.
