A hot, dry summer and a hazy, smoky sky have got the Climate Crusader thinking about water.
Yesterday evening, as I was making the 45 minute drive home after dinner with my in-laws, the air was filled with hazy smoke. There are wildfires burning nearby, following a hot, dry June and even hotter, dryer start to July. Here in the Pacific Northwest we're more known for our 'liquid sunshine' (a.k.a. rain) than actual sunshine, but so far 2015 has proven an exception. We're parched. And local government is responding by increasing water use restrictions. No surprise.
Many people are far more experienced with drought than I am. I have decided to take this opportunity to read through old Green Phone Booth articles to get suggestions. If you'd like tips on saving water and the planet, here's a quick guide I've compiled courtesy of my fellow super heroes.
