We certainly need to be careful how we use water, and not take it for granted!

We have already spoiled most of our fresh water supply in our greed. Those responsible will not be the ones suffering the consequences either. If any of us really knew all the horrible things being done to our water table, lakes, rivers, and oceans, we'd probably go insane! Rest assured (if nature doesn't take us out first) water will be the new gold.

Thank you Cal.....

It's down right pitiful when my Dog turns the side of her lips up drinking water here in California.
I boil it!

If they had cars run by water it would be $20,99 plus a gal

Thank you Cal ~ Sadly noted and like Pam said not a good time to be young.

New England water was always sweet and soft. Now is so hard you can hardly clean your clothes and you are likely to get a rash if you shower to much. I won't water my cat or plants with tap water. They get distilled water and so do I. I have been using water like I live in Flint MI as practice for the decline in our lovely reservoirs .
Surely no one in this room is surprised

Sadly, humans aren't likely to work together and figure out how to share resources.....too many who would rather fight and bring on an apocalypse that they think will get them into heaven rather than deal with the realities we face on earth......

Una situazione veramente grave. Se tutti uniti lavorassimo per il bene di queste persone! Invece siamo troppo individualisti, per farlo. Grazie Cal per condividere.
