”Water is much more valuable than oil; there are alternatives to oil, but there are no alternatives to water,” says Kabat in the interview. In the article, published in the November issue of Nature Climate Change, Kabat discusses the key challenges for water resources worldwide, as population increases and climate change starts to have greater impacts.
