Got this today.....So Germany is going to be the next leader in water?

Do you have more links handy? I'm a water treatment engineer and am interested in the "innovative technologies".

I'll google it.

John, it was an interesting conference. I wouldn't say that the Germans are doing anything particularly technologically innovative, however, they have got their politics lined up to do things in the most innovative and creative ways, particularly in avoiding wasting water. They really understand that water is totally conserved, like aluminum or glass, and can be reused many times. They have gotten past the mindless factor, and gotten on to serious reuse and capture technology solutions.

It was video recorded, I'll see if I can find a link.

They’re ‘hurting’ in Sweden this summer, but that’s relative. Spent an hour driving along ONE lake today and we only saw HALF of it! Pretty sure that one lake has more water than every lake and reservoir in Cali combined.


And this is only the 4th or 5th largest in Sweden!

John, interestingly enough, I got an email today from the organizers with links to some presentations:

That was a pretty good read. I've been thinking of climate change causing coastal houses to be unsellable in terms of flooding, but on the other end, lack of water could certainly do it too. As can having a house that is a fire trap from dried out forests.

Unlike the author, I actually like the treeless, high desert, but I wouldn't want to live somewhere you had to haul in all of the water you used.
