Water

While most people grew up taking water for granted—rarely thinking beyond the tap or shore—climate change and a growing population are changing that. Fresh water for drinking and agriculture is becoming scarcer. And polluted run-off and rising temperatures are impacting our ocean. From fishing to farming, water supply and quality are vital. Resource Media’s Water Team is working with the groups on the cutting edge of this issue. We are helping to communicate the importance of sound policy for California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, raising awareness about nitrogen pollution and algal blooms, and making the case for more sustainable agricultural practices whose benefits will trickle down all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
