THTV: Alexandra Cousteau on Inextricably Linked Energy & Water - Interview Part 1 of 2 (Video)

After the recent announcement of the Live Earth 'Run For Water,' Treehugger Emma sat down with Alexandra Cousteau for a chat at The Lighthouse on the shores of the beautiful Hudson estuary.

Water and energy are Inextricably linked: without water we cannot produce energy, and without energy we cannot deliver water.
Alexandra goes on to remind us that water is the primary vehicle through which we'll feel the impacts of climate change. Put another way, less or no snow on the mountain top means rivers become trickles or dry up all together. She calls on everyone to become a role-model for their communities since water is the only issue that every single person on this planet shares because it is the one thing we all have in common.
