Human activity might have paused for a moment, but climate change continues.
"There's No More Water: Climate Change on a Drying Island."
The New York Times, April 16, 2020.
The New York Times wrote last week about Anjouan, an island in the African nation of Comors.
"...a combination of deforestation and climate change has caused at least half of its permanent rivers to stop flowing in the dry season," according to the article.
Half the rivers.
"We've lost 40 permanent rivers in the past 50 years," according to a local expert.
The headlines may be dominated by plans to reopen the economy. Soon enough we will be thinking about other issues like climate change again.
Soil carbon capture enabled by regenerative farming will be an important part of the solution.
