The far-reaching impacts of the current #drought on our nation's largest #watershed foreshadow the difficult economic and environmental decisions we will have to make on account of #climatechange.

Mapping #water  stressors is an effective way to coordinate targeted restoration efforts and illustrate key threats. By comparing the distribution of locations that offer valuable ecosystem services -- like recreational opportunities for people and habitat for wildlife -- with areas at high risk, conservationists can make a compelling argument for restoring these critical places. #GreatLakes   #GLEAM

This is why it is so important that we keep fighting for our #water, because if we don't make our voices heard, I'm afraid the US will soon follow suit...

Dr. John Lenters: “Lake Superior’s rapid warming is like a canary in the coal mine... We’re seeing changes in ice cover, water temperature, and evaporation that indicate major shifts are underway on the world’s largest lake.”

Happy holidays everyone, and thank you for all you do to protect our #WaterPlanet. Want to get more involved? Check out a local water organization in your area to see how you can help, and continue to reach out to others in your community to bring them into the conversation. We can make 2013 a #watershed year.

#Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals on Earth. A #mother and baby will use calls to communicate, just like humans.They also form tight bonds with each other, seeming to grieve for lost family members.

Those emotional bonds are too often ripped apart. Seismic testing for oil drilling can send noise blasts hundreds of miles, every 10 seconds for weeks, which harm dolphins and drown out their voices. 

If you want to help, please support Oceana's campaign to protect dolphins in the #Atlantic. I have joined them as Senior Adviser and feel strongly that they are one of the best organizations you can support!

The "global water crisis" is about more than just water shortage. There are many interconnected dimensions--changing climatic conditions, shifting seasonal cycles... Too much or too little #water at the wrong place and/or the wrong time--that make this crisis truly global in scale and relevant for every country, rich or poor.
