τα highlights του 2009 (2) - water - Hinkleys



2009 was the Water Year!


all my actions and articles ...have been planned and executed with a single approach!

People say that simple things are powerful.

What about then thinking all our lives and possessions having WATER on our minds?

What about remembering, then, that 65% of our body is water and about 65% of Earth is again...water?

So, we can simply say ... It's the water, stupid! [Athens News, 23.1.2009]

But the problem in Greece with the non-existing water management is a little bit more complicated, so we have to Think Water, Not subsidies [Athens News, 27.2.2009]

Alas, the water problem gets even more complicated with the non-existing waste-management that renders the existing water so polluted beyond any reversing point...
How many Hinkleys are there in Greece? [Athens News, 29.5.2009]

--------------------------------
This is the water problem through 3 perspectives in Athens News,
After that, Athens News was sold...

Lambrakis foundation sold it...

The new owners prefer to have a more magazine approach...

Columnists with sharp pen and invasive look (e.g. Brian Church, Mark Dragoumis, Brady Kiesling) do not write any more ...

The Perspective column 's gone...

The new owners and the new editor prefer a softer approach...

I am afraid that C. Lambrakis will be smiling (bitterly or rather wisely) from up there...

Let it be...

Πρωινές ώρες τα 22-12-2009 στα Άνω Λιόσια, στο Χ.Υ.Τ.Α., κάτω από αδιευκρίνιστες μέχρι στιγμής συνθήκες, καταπλακώθηκε από απορρίμματα ένας τσιγγάνος, με αποτέλεσμα να τραυματισθεί θανάσιμα.

nvesting in innovative research towards finding solutions that are not only scalable but equally, address the complexity of inter-related systems – environmental, institutional, social – in the face of climate uncertainty is critical. It is these "10% solutions" that are often far more effective than large scale infrastructural investments for adaptation.
