Running water: Health Indicator of our environment

Ice block believed to be the indicator once upon a time (picture given from diff angles):

Sumthrang village is just below a huge cliff. To walk up it takes about half an hour but it is just over 15 minutes to walk down from the the cliff top to the village.
The stream that runs down through the ravine of the cliff was once an indicator to predict next harvest of the later season according to the elderly villagers. The 'SOUND OF FALLING ICE' indicates the good harvest to expect say the villagers.

Black carbon initiative: A Black out in leadership!



Pics curtsy: Whats up with that?(WUWT)
United State is looked up on as a world's leader among the countries. But, is it a leadership when the country steps back and tries to engage in excuses like “black carbon initiative” when the globe needs a world leader to help out with Carbon (CO2) reduction.

Piped water is safe drinking?

The pics speaks clear: The leaked pipes at Changzamtok,
Thimphu running down for some buildings blow..
Generally what we think is that a piped water is safe for drinking. Do we confirm that…?
Is it as safe as we think that water is safely reaching your home through the pipe that connects your home till the source?

Its odd up on odd..:(

I was on the way to Gelyong Tshokhang (The national assembly hall). Driving, through the serene winter breeze by the side of Thimpchu(wangchu) river. What would have been the volume of the river some decade ago, when I was not born, people would have been using it for drinking? The volume has obviously shrunken from what once it was some elders say and does any one use it to drink?
