We are already a water-challenged planet. As global climate change continues, we are likely to become more so, according to Vandana Shiva, a noted environmentalist.
Shiva was this year’s Adlai Stevenson lecture series speaker at Illinois Wesleyan and Illinois State universities.
Shiva said civilization requires water, during a conversation on GLT’s Sound Ideas.
Melting ice at the poles and at the fourth pole in the Himalayas, she said, will raise sea levels, dislocating coastal populations and altering rainfall patterns.
