So your assignment this week is to write a speculative fiction piece, based on the future of water. Good speculative fiction is based on science, so here are a few online resources to inform your 3 page papers.
Surging Seas offers a number of tools that allow you to look at how sea level rise will put communities at risk. https://sealevel.climatecentral.org/maps/ (Links to an external site.)
Nyeko posted this one in the Chat on Monday https://coast.noaa.gov/slr/ (Links to an external site.)
This piece provides an overview (with links) on the risks of flooding from precipitation. https://www.nrdc.org/stories/flooding-and-climate-change-everything-you-need-know (Links to an external site.)
Some places, like the American West, where we grow much of our winter produce, are facing both flooding when it does rain, and more pronounced periods of drought. These predictions couldn’t predict over 700 straight days without rain in Los Angeles, because it was outside of the probabilities they assumed. For example, the US uses limited scenarios within the scale of 1 year. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/temp-and-precip/drought/recovery/projected (Links to an external site.)
Yet as pointed out by the Pew Trusts, we cover these shortfalls with groundwater, and many models suggest that most US cities will be in the same boat as Turkey (and a couple of years ago, South Africa), where there simply isn’t enough water for daily needs. https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/trend/archive/spring-2019/a-map-of-the-future-of-water
