Michal Kravčík , a distinguished hydrologist and climate expert from Slovakia and recipient of the Goldman Environmental Prize, has an urgent message for America as well as the rest of the globe: All of us, not just the “experts,” must take action by soaking up the rain in soil and plants, which releases cooling cloud-forming vapor to fall again as rain and restores critical land-based water cycles.

 

The Valley Green Journal is a free monthly newsletter to connect folks in this valley and beyond, who delight in nature, agriculture, and community and how they all tie together into a wonderful outdoors-oriented lifestyle!

SLOW IT DOWN AND SOAK IT UP! HELP RESTORE YOUR LOCAL CLIMATE.

 

Coordinated by Jan Lambert, Editor

 

There is so much all of us can do to lessen the threat of stormwaters flooding our properties and washing away valuable topsoil! We can take action so that water becomes life-giving as Nature intended, and no longer life-threatening. We just need to work with the forces of nature instead of fighting them.

 

It is well-known that conservation of water in the land, whether urban or rural, helps us and Planet Earth in many ways- preventing erosion, pollution, floods, and droughts; helping wildlife habitat and creating beautiful landscapes.

 

But water conservation does something even more important. It can help restore your regional climate. Water cycles are vitally important to climate regulation; there is a lot more to the story of climate change than greenhouse gases.  Please click on THE NEW WATER PARADIGM, written by a group of European scientists who make a compelling case for water conservation as the road back to climate recovery.
