When it comes to water, what is most important to you? For some people, it’s the drought they are facing that has destroyed their crops and livestock, and will continue to have negative impacts on the ecosystem for years to come. For others, it’s how that same drought can become so serious it causes a famine epidemic such as the one experienced in the Horn of Africa this year. For many, it’s the opposite of drought: devastating floods that can wash out whole cities in a single afternoon. Is it the role that water and climate change play in food security that is concerning you? Or ocean acidification and its affects not only on aquatic life around the world, but entire ecosystems that depend on a specific pH balance being disrupted by climate change?
