Fresh water resources diminish in large cities in the world each year, What are the causes of this crucial problem? What are the solutions?
By 2030, the world is going to face acute water shortage. We’ll have only 60% of the water we need.
Don’t be surprised, it was bound to happen. Around 1.1 billion people don’t have access to fresh water and those who are lucky to have access to water don’t really learn the value of water.They might understand it but don’t value it.
What could be the possible reasons of water scarcity? There are numerous reasons. Human kind overuses water. Overuse can be for animals, irrigation, land, recreational act or any other activities without giving a thought to its effects on our environment. Water pollution is a huge problem especially at places where the sewage system is not good. Factories dump their waste into water bodies which not only causes water pollution but also the death of sea animals too. Hundreds of gallons of water are wasted in the shower.
We need water too survive as much as we need air. Without water, you can’t eat anything. If there’s no water how are you gonna irrigate your land or your crops? No water to bath, no water to wash clothes, to cook, to drink, for sanitation. What’ s gonna happen then? We’ll catch diseases, die of thirst and hunger, would kill our own brothers and sisters for water. There would be a chaos all over the world.
Can’t we do anything to prevent this situation? Of course, we can. People are coming up with amazing methods to conserve water like desalination of water, recycling sewage water making it fit for even drinking, ground water recharge, rain water harvesting, dry bath in which you use gel instead of water which is as good as cleaning with water. You ‘ll feel the same level hygiene. Just fixing those dripping taps can save 3,000 gallons per year. Taking such small measures can make a huge difference, provided we start acting now.
