The Science Buzz blog, hosted by the Science Museum of Minnesota has had some excellent posts recently talking about water and water issues.  

Water Use: On Personal Habits and Water
There’s been a lot of focus recently, and rightly so, on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, especially by people who are interested in water and water issues. Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and return to the basics, and think about what is happening with water locally and how your own personal habits impact water and its consumption.  See Water Footprint for more information on how your choices impact your water footprint.
Water Runoff: Running On about Runoff
The Science Buzz had another recent post that has some interesting statistics illustrating some of the changes in water runoff caused by climate change and agriculture.  See We Sure Are Silly When It Comes To Water for a nice summary and a couple of surprising statistics.
Have you seen any interesting posts or articles lately that are returning to the fundamentals of water and water issues?  If so, let us know!
