But we are wasting it…I have been working on a thread on the Internations site:
Here is what we write about there, and water is a topic we have discussed:
For years we have been in a war on misinformation. The misinformation about our radically changing climate is now being exposed. If you do not believe it, it just has not effected you personally yet. The problems are here now, people are dying now, crops are beginning to fail now. What can we do, what are you doing, what is the plan in your community?
So far we have discussed these topics:
Arctic Sea Ice/Antarctica Glaciers
Building sustainable infrastructure
Climate change and what causes it
Climate change and health implications

The week of Earth Day there were protests around the world to draw the attention of government leaders to focus on creating policies and regulations that mitigate the crisis. Notice that these protests have been sustained over many weeks. The urgency is felt all over the world. People are waking up that this is an emergency, a crisis that needs to be faced now, not later in some hazy future.
In addition, April 11th was a very bad day for all concerned about getting and sharing information. The arrest of Julian Assange directly effects news, reports, and information in the public interests – and that includes everything related to the climate crisis.
As we move into another hot summer in the Northern Hemisphere, let us put our government leaders to task about how their policies are going to help people, not only in our own countries, but also in less developed countries struggling to overcome devastating floods, storms, and fires.
