Watchdog in Action:

The facts about wasting water and water shortages immediately erases the passive pictures we may create so that the serious tone to this topic can be ignored, put off, or just not believed. If you do not know some of the details and facts to this topic, then please keep reading. This will help put things into perspective and burst any illusionary bubbles created:

The United Nations has done some estimations that state by the year 2025 almost 75% of our planet's people will have serious shortages of water. The period of time for these shortages will vary from occasionally to constant. The United States will not be excluded from these fresh water shortages. Our old infrastructure and inadequate storage will contribute to our country having serious problems.

To understand how bad things can become, all we have to do is look at areas of our world already suffering from fresh water shortages...
Without a safe fresh water supply we have seen waterborne diseases increase and mostly children are the victims. In Africa tens of thousands of people, mostly children, die from being infected with schistosomiasis each year. This parasitic disease plus diarrhea diseases, kill people because there is no fresh, clean and reliable water. Without fresh water we cannot survive. Many women and children in Africa spend most of their day walking several miles to secure, collect, and return with water for their family. Thus leaving little or no time for going to school, taking care of the family, growing food, community, and other job related tasks.

Ask someone in America who had water rations done in their township and how that little difference caused a big change in their life. Now think of a real fresh water shortage in your life, it will not just be an inconvenience.
