Circle of Blue is the international network of leading journalists, scientists and communications design experts that reports and presents the information necessary to respond to the global freshwater crisis. It is a nonprofit affiliate of the internationally recognized water, climate and policy think tank, the Pacific Institute. With intersections across all sectors — from infectious disease to climate — water is the axis issue. Solving water problems has profound impacts on a majority of the planet’s most urgent challenges.
It’s evident – without water as part of the equation, there can be no long-term solution to climate change. With this in mind Circle of Blue launches our Water + Climate series. As we push forward with other intersectional issues in our series, like energy, migration, hydrology and infrastructure, we will also be monitoring diplomatic developments in the run-up to Copenhagen in December. Ultimately we must recognize the lines that connect, instead of those that divide, two of the biggest threats to the survival of the human race.
Below are three short videos from Copenhagen produced by Circle of Blue, the non-profit environmental journalism organization that I work for.
