The Carbon Footprint of Water, by Bevan Griffiths-Sattenspiel & Wendy Wilson

An excerpt from The Carbon Footprint of Water:

“Water is perhaps our most vital ecosystem service that our natural environment provides.  As the inevitable impacts of climate change become evident, our freshwater resources and the ecosystems they support will become respectively less reliable and resilient.  Smart water policies allow us to mitigate the worst aspects of global warming today, while the consequent improvements in water quality and river health will provide a critical buffer as humanity and nature adapt to the climate of tomorrow.”
