This is a very serious problem. Water will be the new high end resource more expensive than gold. People will die and kill for it. But it doesn't have to be that way, there are ways to live without harming the waters so much and there are ways to clean up the water we do have. But then that would mean smartening up wouldn't it. I signed petition.
