We see floods on TV news almost every day, but the devastation of no water at all, we seldom see the results of.
“March 22 is World Water Day, and to mark this day, the Council of Canadians is encouraging chapters to take action for water in their community. As you know, there are few things more important than clean, safe water.”
Water cost more than gas.
“Around 1.1 billion people globally do not have access to improved water supply sources whereas 2.4 billion people do not have access to any type of improved sanitation facility. About 2 million people die every year due to diarrhoeal diseases, most of them are children less than 5 years of age. The most affected are the populations in developing countries, living in extreme conditions of poverty, normally peri-urban dwellers or rural inhabitants.”
Clean water should be a human right, but our world is varied, complicated, and not fair to all when it comes to natural resources.
I do not know what to do, drinking less water or not flushing the toilet is not a solution. I do not feel very proud of being a good world citizen.
Support the organizations that provide water wells where needed.
“The Dead Sea Depression – The lowest point on earth – 413 m. below sea level. (Greenland 300 m.) Lake Assal in the Afar Depression in Djibouti. The very large Quattara Depression in Egypt. Another in the Afar Depression, Denakil in Ethiopia. On the map and info above, you can see major depressions in 33 different countries. And this does not include Greenland, or the Aral Sea, one of the worst human made catastrophes in the history.”
The Aral Sea is another very sad story by its own.
I will try not to complain about all the rain any more, I will pretend I like it.
