How Fresh Water is Changing with the Climate


Anna Michalak, faculty member for the department of Global Ecology at the Carnegie Institution for Science, discusses where fresh water is on planet Earth and how it is changing with climate change. "Even though the total amount of water on earth is of course huge and it doesn't really increase or decrease, the amount of water that we can actually use year-to-year is a very small fraction of a very small fraction of that," said Michalak.
