Climate Change and the Water Cycle
Last updated 1/19/2018 at 9:21am
With a changing climate and more variability in precipitation patterns, understanding what's really going on with the water cycle is critical to preparing for the future. This lecture demystifies the misperceptions, reveals how advances in science are leading to better understanding of the status and future of water availability and the role the ocean and climate are playing in shaping the future of our communities and the blue planet overall. As the costs of water rise, water utilities face major challenges in trying to maintain an operational revenue base while promoting less water use.
The talk will also briefly address the innovations addressing the reduction of both energy use and emissions in water systems and a reduction in water use overall. Mr. Nettleton is the founder of an environmental policy firm specializing in forming complex coalitions and handling high profile issues involving government, media, business, and neighborhoods. He also founded Open Oceans Global, an NGO linking people to the world's oceans. He serves on the national and California advisory councils for Environmental Entrepreneurs, a national, nonpartisan group of business owners, investors, and others who advocate for policies that are good for the economy and good for the environment, where his subject specialties relate to climate, oceans, water, and energy.
