We should all live our lives as if we lived in Flint, Michigan USA.
Restrict our water usage to what those people get per day and see how serious it really is. Try it for a day - It Sucks

A few folks are just waking up to this fact. Then, only a tiny percentage of them tries to help the situation. Good luck to us all---except the 1% who have plans that don't include us--and they're implementing them. Thanks Julie. Noted the beginnings 50 years ago.
