Water. Water is life.
We take water for granted.
Globally, 1.8 billion people – that’s about one out of every four people – drink from contaminated water sources. Unsafe water leads to illnesses that claim the lives of 840,000 people each year, almost half of whom are children under the age of five.
There are people in our own country who do not have running water. Who do not even have an easy way to get water.
Access to water is a human rights issue and one with global warming we are not going to be able to ignore for long. We probably won’t do anything about it until it becomes difficult for white middle class Americans to get water.
