“Nor any drop to drink.”


LM Ruhland, 2008 MCPP intern

Skeptical Inquirer’s Benjamin Radford has a good article about water shortages and why we aren’t actually running out of water.  In a nutshell– the hydrologic cycles don’t ever just stop; there’s not a whole lot of water that ever actually leaves earth.  It just gets more expensive to make it useful.  Everything there is applicable in the ongoing debate about the commodification of Great Lakes water, so I encourage you to take a look.  The science is presented in easily digestible chunks.
