Bangladesh Tries Working With Nature to Stave Off Sea Level Rise 25.3.2009 TreeHugger
photo: via flickr Bangladesh has got it rough. Even without climate change set to give the nation a one-two punch (rising sea levels and increased storms coming in off the Bay of Bengal, and increasing run-off from the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers coming down from the Himalaya), the yearly effect of monsoonal flooding is pretty bad. Well, the is reporting on how some Bangladeshis are using increasing silt runoff to shore up the land around them:... ...

US High-Tech Water Future Hinges on Cost, Politics 13.3.2009 Truthout.com
Los Angeles - Anyone who has visited Disneyland recently and taken a sip from a drinking fountain there may have unknowingly sampled a taste of the future - a small quantity of water that once flowed through a sewer.
