Can we address the extreme weather effects of global warming by direct action on water cycles? Our upcoming October conference, Restoring Water Cycles to Reverse Global Warming (http://bio4climate.org/conferences/conferences-2015/tufts-2015-restoring-water-cycles/program/), will demonstrate the possibilities featuring presentations by internationally renowned Slovakian hydrologist Michal Kravcik (author of Water for the Recovery of the Climate: A New Water Paradigm (http://www.waterparadigm.org/download/Water_for_the_Recovery_of_the_Climate_A_New_Water_Paradigm.pdf)) and Canadian water rights activist and Maude Barlow (chair of the board of Food and Water Watch), among others.
At our September 13th Meetup, Biodiversity for a Livable Climate (http://bio4climate.org/) Program Coordinator Brian Cartwright will present a conference sneak preview to introduce us to the New Water Paradigm which is the framework for the event. Brian will highlight a variety of successful large and small scale methods for keeping water circulating in local landscapes, supporting vegetation and biodiverse species working cooperatively.
Join us from 6:00-7:00 p.m. for a potluck and informal networking before Brian begins his presentation. We look forward to seeing you there!
