Could More Urban Trees Mitigate Runoff and Flooding? JSTOR Daily

"...The researchers acknowledge that planting trees can be costly, but much less so than the damage that flooding can cause. A conventional parking lot could cost 53,000 euros, and a green infrastructure parking lot would cost an estimated 27 percent more.

LETTER: Water supply can't keep pace with development

"...How did climate change reach critical status to be a public health crisis? While large swaths of British Columbia are on fire costing taxpayers billions to repair damage from frequent weather events, our elected officials go about business as normal. There is no irony in what can only be interpreted as a water shortage while all the municipalities listed are pushing for more and more building. A household of four uses 12,000 gallons of water per month, this doesn’t include outdoor watering which is restricted every April..."

Sink or swim: Can island states survive the climate crisis?

"...Most research indicates that low-lying atoll islands, predominantly in the Pacific Ocean such as the Marshall Islands and Kiribati, risk being submerged by the end of the century, but there are indications that some islands will become uninhabitable long before that happens: low-lying islands are likely to struggle with coastal erosion, reduced freshwater quality and availability due to saltwater inundation of freshwater aquifers. This means that small islands nations could find themselves in an almost unimaginable situation, in which they run out of fresh water long before they run out of land..."
