Watershed: A blog about water

“Whiskey is for drinking. Water is for fighting over.” Such is the tagline to Watershed — a new blog started by my friend Morgan Noel, devoted to news and analysis of the politics, science, aesthetics, and sheer weirdness of water! Wars have been fought over the stuff, so he’s going to have plenty of material; indeed, given the rate at which global warming is promising to change global patterns of waterflow, we may soon be getting rather more water-related news than we’d prefer.

Apropos of that last point, if you’d like add a dash of apocalyptic despair to your morning coffee, you could get one of these “Global Warming Vanishing Land” mugs, which Morgan blogged about yesterday. From the description on the mug’s web site:

Each mug is covered with a map of the world. When you pour in a hot beverage, the mug shows what happens when the world heats up and the oceans begin to rise… Land mass disappears before your very eyes!

WATCH Florida get swallowed by the Atlantic.

SEE valuable California waterfront property turn into a modern-day Atlantis.

WITNESS Central America dissolving into a few, small islands.

Good to the last drop!

(Thanks to Morgan for this one!)
