Without water,we die.We came from water/are largely made of water
and access to potable water makes our settlements,villages,towns and cities.
Fine!Yet rain falls largely in the First World-Canada,Russia,Brazil and The Ununited States..
And artesian sources are often briny and difficult to access.Water has become the NEW OIL!
Of course,we divert rivers,abate floods,build bridges and pump lakes.All these have side-effects..
De-afforestation changes the water cycle.Sahara was once a rainforest.Desertification compounds and increases.
We live in a balanced closed system of moving waters.7 billion people need daily access to fresh waters.
We add chlorine and fluoride and waste and sewage and chemicals and pharmaceuticals
and sell treated water in plastic bottles(which themselves become mountains)
We know our seas are nano-plastic.We know icecaps are melting,and water levels are rising like temperatures..
We say we are the Crown of Creation.There is a crack in that -fracked,earthquaking..
