SOAK UP THE RAIN — HELP THE CLIMATE

Renewing Water Cycles by Rehydrating Landscapes-Naturally!

Michal Kravčík , a distinguished hydrologist and climate expert from Slovakia and recipient of the Goldman Environmental Prize, has an urgent message for America as well as the rest of the globe: All of us, not just the “experts,” must take action by soaking up the rain in soil and plants, which releases cooling cloud-forming vapor to fall again as rain and restores critical land-based water cycles.

Otherwise we will experience worsening drought, heat waves and other climate woes, including floods and severe storms. Dr. Kravčík is a seasoned world lecturer who will be touring North America in March and April 2017, presenting natural, inexpensive solutions for restoring more livable landscapes and weather patterns. For anyone, lay or professional, concerned about water supplies, land use, or climate, this will be time well spent.
