Water Wars

Today, August 12th is Twestival Day, when volunteers from more than 200 cities around the world collaborate via Twitter to raise awareness about the world’s water problem. Problem??? Oh yes!! Over 1 billion people do not have access to clean water. That’s shocking enough. Hold on to your hats. It is going to get a lot worse. As I reported in my post The Precipice, UNESCO issued a World Water Development Report that predicts that by 2020, YOUR access to water will be reduced by 33%. Yes , YOU, your children and your neighbors will have to get by with 1/3 less water in next decade.

We all know that our actions produce results. We need to be reminded that our inaction also produces results. You can help. Spread awareness. Reduce your water consumption. Help Twestival succeed in alleviating the suffering of a billion people. Go to http://video.liveearth.org/ to find out how. You need  to pay attention to this. IT AFFECTS YOU.
