As a native Texan my heart goes out for all those suffering in Houston and elsewhere from the effects of hurricane Harvey. Many years ago I gave a speech on water. The purpose of the speech was to help people look at water from a different perspective. There are so many interrelated aspects of the use of water, and ways to prevent or decrease the severity of excess water created disasters, or the lack thereof. That speech I posted here on my blog way back in 2012. Maybe one day we will ask ourselves if it makes more sense to spend billions in solutions or on crisis resolution. For those with inquiring minds, I refer back to that original post.
Since that original post I’ve discovered other companies that have taken the steps to see water in a different way. Here is just one of them.
