Water: Why Care For It?

Why is there a water crisis – and why should I care?


There is no simple answer as to why this situation is unfolding.  Climate change, modifications to natural water flows, population, pesticides and pollution have affected various regions in one way or another.


What is now painfully apparent is that this is not just about clean water in one small remote region.  It’s an issue already facing billions of people in many cities and rural areas around the world.  In some countries, the situations have already reached critical mass, with people disfigured and dying because of a lack of quality water.  It is estimated that every day, water (or a lack of) takes the lives of over 14,000 people – and the problem threatens to get even worse.  Other regions have not yet been affected to this degree.



the questions facing us...
9500 children dead each day!  That ’s like three 9/11 attacks every 24 hours!!!
A lack of fresh water is a bad thing!  Let us sort this problem out now!

But as Mikhail Gorbachev once said of the global water crisis “The bell tolls for all of us.”  There is only so much fresh water on this earth.  As residents of our “little blue planet” hurtling through space, if and when a clean water supply runs out, what are we going to do?  Where will we turn for help?


And you thought the big crisis was oil!
