  3. Water in the Anthropocene is a 3-minute film charting the global impact of humans on the water cycle.

    Evidence is growing that our global footprint is now so significant we have driven Earth into a new geological epoch — the Anthropocene.

    Human activities such as damming and agriculture are changing the global water cycle in significant ways.

    The data visualisation was commissioned by the Global Water Systems Project for a major international conference (Water in the Anthropocene, Bonn, Germany, 21-24 May, 2013).
    conference2013.gwsp.org

    As datasets build upon one another, the film charts Earth's changing global water cycle, why it is changing, and what this means for the future. The vertical spikes that appear in the film represent the 48,000 large dams that have been built.

    The film was produced by Globaïa and the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme.
    globaia.org // igbp.net

    The film is part of the first website on the concept of humans as a geological force, anthropocene.info

  4. The Georgetown Climate Center recently hosted an important discussion about how communities can become more resilient to extreme weather and climate change through floodplain regulations.

    The webinar, held Dec. 6, 2012, featured a discussion of a model sea-level rise ordinance developed by the Georgetown Climate Center and insights from three experienced planners from Iowa, New Hampshire, and Mississippi. Practitioners shared lessons learned and their experiences enhancing regulatory standards in floodplains in the wake of extreme weather events - lessons that may prove particularly valuable as the northeastern United States recovers from Superstorm Sandy.

    Webinar Presenters:

    - Vicki Arroyo, executive director of the Georgetown Climate Center
    - Jessica Grannis, staff attorney for the Georgetown Climate Center and author of “Adaptation Tool Kit: Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Land Use”
    - Julie LaBranche, senior planner for the Rockingham Planning Commission in New Hampshire
    - Marty Ryan, city planner of Cedar Falls, Iowa
    - Mike Smith, fire chief of Waveland, Mississippi
    - Emily Maus, Georgetown Law student
