Skating on thin ice

We started the rapid slide down hill, which ends in earth's total ecological destruction a long time ago. Ozone holes, global warming, melting of polar ice caps slash glaciers and now we face a new crisis - earth's water supply.

One in five people on the planet do not have access to safe drinking water.

Industry continues to pour its waste back into the environment and contaminate ground water supplies. We waste so much water, by taking it for granted, that water is an inexhaustible resource.

There are several reasons for the water crisis.

One is the simple rise in population, and the desire for better living standards. The other major cause is the huge inefficiency of irrigation in many developed counties, and also right up there is the production of meat, (water utilized to produce 1 pound of meat amounts to 2,500 gallons).

It's time to change our attitude towards water and the way we use it.
