Are you afraid of what life looks like in a drier world? Thomas Culligan says, “It’s a human health crisis waiting to happen.”
He references paddleboarding in the salt marshes of Charleston, South Carolina and seeing dolphins blow through their blowholes with a baby on their dorsal fin. Missing out on natural beauties like these is what he is afraid of if we don’t have clean water.
“It may sound cliché, but water really is life.”
Potential boiling water advisories, agricultural runoff into our streams, or a drier world in general: Culligan says it’s a recipe for disaster, but it’s 100% avoidable.
Living in Harrisonburg, VA, he says they have been in a drought since June and need 6-9 inches of rain to revive their groundwater. Culligan doesn’t think things like this are talked about enough.
Tune in to this episode of Wild Virginia Coffee Talk to hear more about Thomas' experience with the Wild Virginia Clean Water Advocates program and why he wants a world still beautiful enough for the next generation to enjoy.
