From pole to pole in a quest for water

I’m growing somewhat tired of the crazy-feat-for-charity thing. And what would make someone more tired than running from the North Pole to the South Pole?

However, I’ll temper my cynicism based on the cause. And this is one of those times. Pat Farmer, of Sydney, Australia, is an ultra-runner about to embark on a fund-raising run to generate an ambitious $100 million (US) to bolster Red Cross clean water efforts around the world. Having recently read Water Wars: Drought, Flood, Folly and the Politics of Thirst by Diane Raines Ward, I can’t help but support the effort, having now at least a pedestrian knowledge of this growing global dilemma. It’s big time folks, and things aren’t getting better.
