    It's hard to imagine being without drinking water ... so much of the world doesn't have safe drinking water, but we tend not to think about it until it happens in our communities (e.g. due to the ice storms). But think about Flint.  Wow.  Water.

    It was startling to see how much water goes into one pound of beef!!!

    I thought it was genius for solar panel arrays to be built over canals in India, protecting the water from evaporation and using the sun instead to generate power.
