Cool water - Blue is the New Green

Editor's Notes

  1. Typeface/font still needs work for subheads
  2. Typeface/font still needs work for subheads
  3. 1.35°F temperature increase, more evaporation Largest river basin, Murray-Darling, is down to 25% of flow Reservoir inflows near Perth 80% below historical Higher temps/lower flows, more stagnant water, more dengue fever from mosquitoes
