Why Our Global Water Crisis Needs A Moonshot

By Zenia Tata, Executive Director, Global Expansion, XPRIZE On World Water Day, we are served a powerful reminder that water is life. Water is the universal link between human survival, our climate system and sustainable global development. But a quick search on Google with the question, “Will earth ever run out of water?” will spring up an optimistic ‘never’ in a matter of milliseconds. A check of the facts illustrates that planet Earth is covered with 71% water and the amount of water will always remain the same, merely changing its form over time. However, according to The United Nations World Water Development Report 2016, the world could face a 40% global water deficit by 2030 […]

Here Are All of D.C.’s St. Patrick’s Day Faux Pas This Year

From pints of guinness to parades and green dye, St. Patrick’s Day often gives politicians and those working in Washington ample opportunity to get into the spirit. Although some tried to do so this year, politicians including House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald Trump made some blunders. Here’s a roundup of some of the faux pas and how the reactions unfolded. President Trump and the proverb (that very likely could have been from a Nigerian poem) Speaking at a “Friends of Ireland” lunch during a visit from the Irish Prime Minister, President Trump invoked a proverb. ” As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of that proverb — and this is a good one, this is one I like; I’ve heard it for many, many years and I love it — ‘Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you,’” Trump said. “It’s a great phrase.” But, as some on Twitter noted, the quote sounded very similar to the words of a Nigerian man, Albasheer Adam Alhassan. Trump's favorite Irish proverb that he struggled to read aloud was written by Albashir Adam Alhassan, a Nigerian. https://t.co/sk8yIcRgiD — Fuzzy Dunlop (@BillsNewAccount) March 16, 2017 Trumps #IrishProverb was written by a #Muslim from Nigeria 😀! 🇮🇪 🇳🇬 🇺🇸 🇮🇪 🍀🍀🍀 #StPatricksDay #StPaddysDay pic.twitter.com/CSIOwmyDB8 — Shaykh Umar Al-Qadri (@DrUmarAlQadri) March 17, 2017 "Irish Proverb" me hole. https://t.co/dWLregquCs — mark little (@marklittlenews) March 16, 2017 Alhassan told CNN, “I posted those things when I was back in school, over 10 years ago. I never thought it would get to this level.” The proverb was originally provided by the State Department as a “building block” for the event, The Hill reports. Paul Ryan Struggled With a Pint of Guiness Twitter had a field day after an image of Paul Ryan holding up a pint of Guinness at that same lunch went viral. The beer’s head, which is typically served thick and foamy, appeared to be lacking.

Doctors say climate change is making Americans sicker.

According to the cover article in today’s issue of the journal Nature, the iconic reef off the coast of Australia suffered unprecedented coral die-off after last year’s record-breaking bleaching event. Now, as the Southern Hemisphere hits late summer temperatures, central and southern sections of the reef — areas which avoided the worst of last year’s bleaching — are in trouble.

“We didn’t expect to see this level of destruction to the Great Barrier Reef for another 30 years,” coral researcher Terry Hughes told the New York Times. Hughes led the team that conducted aerial surveys to document the bleaching last year, as well as subsequent surveys to assess just how much of that bleaching turned into dying.

Bleached corals don’t always turn into dead corals — some are able to recover when temperatures drop. Er, if temperatures drop. If water temperatures stay high and corals stay bleached, they will eventually starve to death. Without coral building reefs, whole ecosystems may disappear, along with the food, tourism, and jobs they support.

Hughes and his coauthors found that even corals in pristine, protected water were likely to be suffering from heat stress, meaning the only thing left to do to protect corals is, you know, address climate change.
