Blue planet

(article, Culinate staff)

Back in September 2008, National Geographic sifted the state of the planet's soil. Nearly two years later, the magazine has devoted its entire April issue to a related topic: water. Every article, from a meditation by Barbara Kingsolver to a look at Asia's shrinking glaciers to a report on freshwater creatures, is about H2O and its absolute essentialness to life on the globe. After all, you have to eat. But you have to drink even more. Pick up a copy today — the 40th anniversary of Earth Day — and check it out.
