Are you wondering about why we are suffering from water crisis? Well, according to the World Resource Institute (WRI), there are many reasons why this is happening. These are climate change, ground water depletion, wasting of water, natural infrastructure is being ignored, and problems in man-made water infrastructures are not given due attention.
First let us talk about the climate change. Climate change is warming of the earth’s atmosphere, and the clouds which are usually on the equator are moving towards the poles and causing the equatorial countries to have a drought or a scorching hot climate with only a few drops of rain.
Another reason is the waste of water. Most people like to take a long shower, letting the water run while brushing teeth, washing utensils, and watering the plants. Even factories use a lot of water to create energy and that is also a large waste of water.
The next reason is that natural infrastructures are being ignored. Healthy ecosystems are important to have a clean water supply. Sadly, many of the natural infrastructures are being destroyed by deforestation and urbanization. Many watersheds are lost because of these developments.
Man-made water infrastructures are not given attention too. Example of water infrastructures are the pipes that carry the water to houses and buildings so that they can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, in the garden and for drinking. Some of these pipes are broken, leaking or very old but are not being given attention by authorities. This is one of the reasons water can’t get to its assigned area, they are wasted, thus people don’t have much to drink or use.
With all these reasons I hope that the people will realize that they have to change for the better and save water for the future generations. Otherwise, there will be no more water for their children and grandchildren. All living things and the entire earth will die without water.
I hope that I can begin to save water from today onwards.
