Transition Talks on Water – Water in Everything, Everywhere
Wednesday 31 May 2023
18:50 to 20:00
We face multiple challenges regarding water. Chaotic global weather now impacts us all from the national, through to the regional and down to the domestic. It’s easy to forget about floods when we have droughts and vice versa. Too much or too little and not at the right time or in the right place. There’s now no such thing as ‘waste water’; there’s shortages somewhere. This series of talks takes a deeper look at this important issue.
The fourth talk on 31 May is by Angela Cotton, a retired medical physicist who specialised in non-ionising radiation safety. Last year Angela applied her astute analytical skills to deliver a critique of the Hydrogen Economy in an engaging and well received talk. This time she lends her forensic skills to explain how everything in our lives has a water ‘cost’ from a pair of jeans to an avocado. There really is no such thing as ‘waste water’; it’s a commodity we can’t afford to squander.
Each talk is free and open to the public. The talks are funded by a local resident and provided under the auspices of Transition Southampton. There’s no need to book – just turn-up.
