Wow! I’m impressed with the wealth of information in your first newsletter. I love the format and variety of topics. Can’t wait to see what next month with bring.
This is pretty interesting!
This newsletter was great! I really enjoyed all the different angles that ya’ll took on water. Here are a couple other to consider:
-amount of water needed to process foods (especially those based in the corn industry)
-incredible water filtering techniques that are employed in many third world countries
-the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (I don’t know if you’re only focusing on fresh water but if you’re going to look into marine systems, you should definitely check this out.)
Can’t wait to read the next issue!
Very interesting first issue! It reminded me of the issues surrounding water in the Hawaiian islands. There are few sources of fresh water in the middle of the ocean, and so the allocation of water has become a large political issue.
Recently, many court battles have been fought over the use and diversion of water from one part of an island to another (usually for agriculture). Might be interesting to investigate in your next issue…
See the “Waiahole Ditch” for an example of this: http://archives.starbulletin.com/97/04/25/news/story1.html
