Solutions to the effects of global warming on water management from a geographical point of view...proposed by

Because of global warming water levels all over the world are rising. This is a big geographical issue. Many lowlands and islands will be swallowed by the rising oceans if they are not protected from the sea. One of the things that we can do to protect these areas is to try to build walls or barriers that can keep water away from cities and nature. By doing this the environment will not be destroyed by raising water. Of course, these walls can not protect us for ever, and if the water level gets higher than the walls, catastrophe is near. But even if that happens, there is one solution that can save all the people! We can build floating houses or houseboat-like houses. This will save everyone!
When the climate gets warmer and people chop down forests, deserts forms and spreads. We can not remove the deserts, but we can prevent them from spreading. We have got many different solutions to this problem. One solution is to plant lots and lots of trees in the outskirts of the deserts. By doing this, the trees can absorb all the moisture from rain and maybe even reduce the deserts. Another solution is that we want to drag pipelines, which can provide water for people who already live in deserts. They need every help they can get.
In many parts of the world there is a lack of fresh water. Fresh water is very important for all living things. However we have the technology to help everyone in these areas. We’ve got many solutions to the lack of fresh water. We want to purify saltwater to make it into fresh water. We also want to use all the water from rain in these areas. We want to make some kind of container for this water and keep it in a water tower or something similar.
In areas where there is a lot of pollution, sometimes companies pollute water instead of letting all their gases into the atmosphere. This affects all life in the waters such as fish. They die or immigrate to other areas because there is too much carbon dioxide in the water. Fish that emigrates may threaten other fish that already lives in the area they immigrate to. But we can save the fish! We think that a ban on emitting carbon dioxide into water is appropriate. Also, we can clear the waters of excess carbon dioxide, so that fish may swim again in their waters.
