it is world water week in sweden this week, and i wanted to possibly increase awareness of this, as well as begin to bring katrina into conciousness (since its 2 weeks before the second anniversary)....

this is the 17th year that sweden has taken initiative to address the state of water in the world, and could be a good role model for the rest of the world in the future

living in america the cleanliness and availability of water is not very high on our priority list, i know, as all we need to do is go to the supermarket and by bottled water....and while we bitch about this current issue of "what is spring and what is purified and why am i paying for something that i can get for free from the sink", we rarely take the time to think about the state of this most needed natural resource.

as we read more and more about the extreme weahter that has been affecting the u.s. as well as the rest of the world, its time to consider what drastic climate change would mean for us

living on the great lakes, fresh water is a given in my world, but natural disasters have become increasingly severe, and the cost of aid and recovery has increased

i know that it is scary and uncomfortable to think about the ways weather change our world, but if nothing else makes you think, the amount of money the changing gulf stream will cost us should make you wnat to help change this trend of waste and non-responsibility!

Song of the day: the water is wide- traditional
