The scale and nature of the challenges resulting from global warming are beginning to be understood by the scientific community and more recently by politicians and the general public. One of the biggest impacts is likely to be on the water environment and, for example, on the quantity and quality of water available for public water supply. Some people contend that the impacts on flood risks are evident at this time.
Finding the best solutions possible
