Water

Climate change is in the news, as is peak oil. On Sunday, the New York Times reminded us that we need to think about water, too. In The Future Is Drying Up, Jon Gertner has taken an in-depth look at water and the American West.

If you think this pertains only to the American West, check out Monday's Atlanta Shudders at Prospect of Empty Faucets, also from the New York Times. As the BBC's Why world's taps are running dry points out, it's a global issue, too.

Why did I tag this business as well as environment? Because business will be affected, and business can make a difference.
