How do you raise the profile of a devastating Nebraska drought? Give it a name, like David? Carl Ganter, of the non-profit group Circle of Blue, says that as climate change increases the threat of droughts, we need new stories and images to raise awareness.

Reporting on water needs to be accelerated at every level. Our decision-makers need to realize that this is not just a global issue, but one that is hitting us right here at home.

Water really is the axis issue that impacts climate, health, poverty and energy not only in the developing world but also here at home in the U. S. More stories like this one could help increase the public awareness about the critical importance of water in all of our lives.

What a wonderful, insightful piece. We are just beginning to realize the importance and fragility of water. Circle of Blue will be able to tell the stories that need to be told so solutions can be found and implemented before it is too late.

I'm glad to see this issue getting more coverage. Few topics have more impact on humanity than water, and the public stands to gain a great deal by supporting this kind of reportage.

Thank you for giving time to this critical issue. Carl and his team are doing a great job of elevating this cause in the public conciousness.
