Water news haikus no. 8

By Daniel Collins 15/01/2010


How could I forget
Events distilled like sake
Yes, haikus are back

Science

Disrupted monsoon
A model where mountains rule
Not Tibet plateau

In the great north lakes
Evap now trumps precip in
Lake level changes

New Zealand

Shortfalls of water
Enter garden restrictions
Zero to xeri

International

How not to write news
Alternet’s coverage error
Panned by blog critics

Plummeting lake height
Yields fewer fish, more migrants
Next stop: Chad dust bowl

Epic fight for wealth
Water book tracks history
You are what you read

Equipment destroyed
As punishment, vandals must
Risk crocs for water
