“The Professor pondered this and sat down to flick through some papers. ‘Global warming and the Kyoto thing prompted lots of column-inches about our ‘carbon footprints’ but no one is talking about water footprints. We all have them. Carbon footprints are a measure of wasted energy and pollution, but it’s your water footprint that will creep up behind you and kill you!”
