Less than 200 years ago, white men found South Florida an uninhabitable swampland. But with an arsenal of chemicals, war, infrastructure innovations, and biased bureaucracy, he transformed the Everglades into a literal and metaphorical cul-de-sac. In the context of the climate crisis, which primarily manifests as water hazards, Sugar Water asks scientists, realtors, farmers, fishermen, and the common man how the redistribution and pollution of Florida's most prized resource shapes their relationship to the land, their communities and futures.
