Summary
In this program, Simon Schama explores how American optimism about the infinite possibilities of its land and resources is in danger of coming to a grinding halt. Nowhere is this more evident than in the West, which is now in the grip of a nine-year drought. The Hoover Dam, built to provide irrigation for farming and for the new city of Las Vegas, now no longer supplies enough water for both. In 1980 Ronald Reagan's positivity about American plenty defeated Jimmy Carter's campaign for self-restraint, but in the 2008 presidential election, neither candidate can ignore the challenges facing America as it enters an era of limits
