We uncovered a world of research and insights that requires further recognition and acknowledgement. The ‘Green Water Cools’ guidelines are our “best effort” with the resources that we have available until now.

At the moment we are creating an environment for sharing the knowledge and preparing for large scale validation and valuing of the insights. Are you interested in this then please send an email to connect[at]

The people behind ‘Green Water Cools’ have done this research completely independently and untill now fully pro bono. Help us to spread the insights by sharing this video in your network so we can realize the Paris climate goals faster, cheaper, with less risk and more social perspective and save our civilization.
