This presentation explores the natural history of water and examines how earthlings (human and otherwise) have interacted with this mysterious substance over geological time. We will explore how human activities have impacted the Earth’s natural water cycle on an unprecedented scale and discuss solutions that individuals and communities can implement to mitigate the challenges we face. This session is delivered in an entertaining storytelling format full of striking imagery that will get you thinking about water in a new way.
