Watergrabbing - An Atlas of Water by Emanuele Bompan. Britain's vast national gamble on wind power may yet pay off. 4 billion people face water shortages, scientists find. According to the World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report 2016, water crises are one of the three biggest challenges we face.
A new study has backed up these findings, estimating that 4 billion people – two-thirds of the global population – are facing water scarcity.

Solar Power in Europe. Turkey - International. Last Updated: July 7, 2015 (Notes) full report Turkey is an increasingly important transit hub for oil and natural gas supplies as they move from Central Asia, Russia, and the Middle East to Europe and other Atlantic markets.
Turkey is well placed to serve as a hub for oil and natural gas supply headed to Europe and other Atlantic markets from Russia, the Caspian region, and the Middle East (Figure 1). Turkey has been a major transit point for oil and is becoming more important as a transit point for natural gas. Growing volumes of Caspian oil are being sent to Black Sea ports such as Novorossisyk, Russia and Supsa, Georgia and then to Western markets by tanker via the Turkish Straits (Bosporus and Dardanelles waterways).
Turkey is primed to become a significant natural gas pipeline hub. Figure 1.

According to the 2014 Global Energy Trends publication, Enerdata points out 2014 as a remarkable year with a near stagnation in energy demand and CO2 emissions despite economic growth. The G20’s 2014 Key Energy figures: +3.5% Economic Growth +0.3% (10.8 Gtep) Energy consumption stagnation -0.2% (26GtCO2) CO2 emissions stabilisations The main trends derived from the publication are: Water Shortages Unite Iraq, Islamic State Against Turkey. There’s one thing Islamic State militants and the Iraqi government they’re besieging agree on: Turkey is using more than its fair share of water.
Water levels on the Euphrates River that flows 2,700 kilometers (1,700 miles) from eastern Turkey through Syria and Iraq past ancient Mesopotamian lands have fallen more than half this year, withering farmers’ crops and raising the risk of a wider regional conflict, Iraqi officials say. Iraq and Islamic State say Turkey needs to release more water from its dams to replenish the river in the former Fertile Crescent area where drought-like conditions endanger millions. The situation has grown even more acute for Iraq after Islamic State, whose holdings fall within the watershed, used a dam captured in Ramadi in June to cut off water to government areas.

Energy Information Administration's new energy visualization widget allows users to display interactive visualizations of current energy data pulled from EIA's data application programming interface (API) on their own websites. Using the API browser, users can discover how EIA's energy data series can be charted, mapped, or broken down into their related components. The EIA data interface allows users to create maps, line charts, pie charts, and bar graphs. For example, EIA's new widget tool allows users to embed visualizations showing monthly and quarterly net electricity generation for the United States, including the map shown above, on their own websites.

The Middle East leads the board in crude exports with 850.1 million tonnes shipped out in 2014. It's followed by Russia (294.8), West Africa (213.9), and Canada (148.6). In terms of product exports, like gasoline and diesel, the US is No. 1 with 179.9 million tonnes, closely trailed by, again, Russia and the Middle East.

World Water Day: Mapping the spread of dams in the US — CartoDB Blog. World Water Day was celebrated this past Sunday bringing attention to issues around water and sustainable development.
Given current water use, the UN predicts the world will face a 40% shortfall in water by 2030. Recent news on California’s on-going drought, and the environmental risk posed by hundreds of dams in the US highlight the importance of water in our lives. Much of American history, both geological and cultural, is linked to the rivers of the nation. Dams, as barriers to river flow, fit into the fabric of that narrative. There are over 80,000 dams in the US, many of them built in the early 1900s.
