Happy Earth Day!!
Hello Water People-
Sorry it's been a while - I was at the American Society for Environmental History conference last week. I got to see the Salt River (see the picture above), meet with representatives from Arizona State University's Decision Center for a Desert City, and listen to the most cutting edge historical research on water, rivers, and other environmental topics. It was a blast!!
In honor of Earth Day, I'd like everyone to think about the water system that we take for granted. Take the quiz at http://lifebytheliter.org/ and see if you can live on the 30 liters a day available to many people around the world - only 30 liters for drinking, cooking, sanitation, bathing. FYI - the average American uses 262 liters a day.
