I open the April National Geographic to this page, these facts.
Americans use about 100 gallons of water at home each day.
Millions of the world's poorest subsist on fewer than five gallons.
46 percent of people on earth do not have water piped to their homes.
Women in developing countries walk an average of 3.7 miles to get water.
In 15 years, 1.8 billion people will live in regions of severe water scarcity.
These figures seem unimaginable and yet what is even more sobering is the information on the melting glaciers in the heart of Asia. Anyone who still doesn't believe in global warming, who sees it has a hoax, needs to read this issue of NG. It is happening and has been happening and it is sobering indeed. We need water for body and soul.
