Where’s The Water?

Where’s The Water?

According to the July/August 2001 Utne Reader, there won’t be enough fresh water to go around by the year 2025. As the Superior Wilderness Action Network notes, “This will be of particular concern in the Upper Great Lakes, since we have roughly a fifth of the world’s fresh water.” No wonder the bottling companies are moving into this region so quickly.

According to an international panel of scientists currently meeting at a world forum in Shiga China, “More than half of the world’s 5 million lakes are being dried up and polluted to the point of collapse” (emphasis added).
