Climate & Earth The Science Inside

[LISTEN] The Science Inside: The drought episode

This week The Science Inside radio show looks at the drought and water crisis hitting South Africa. Find out exactly where your water comes from with Dean Muruven from WWF SA’s #JourneyOfWater and take a look at how Cirrus Water Management is using atmospheric water generation to make water out of thin air.

With the help of the Water Research Commission’s Jay Bhagwan, find out how more than 30% of drinkable water gets flushed down the toilet, and take a look at one alternative, the Enviro-Loo.

Prof Mary Scholes sheds light on why the drought is happening and what impact it could have on food security.

The Science Inside is an initiative of the Wits Radio Academy.
