When Humans Run Out of Potable Water, This Is What We’ll Do ⇥

“Imagine turning on your tap and seeing no water come out. Or looking down into your village’s only well and finding it dust-dry. Much of the developing world could soon face such a scenario. According to the United Nations, 1.2 billion people already suffer from severe water shortages, and that number is expected to increase to 1.8 billion over the next decade, in part because of climate change.”

This is a problem that Singapore is also facing right now. Thankfully the government is committed to funding mulitple sources of water from recycling to desalination. 

Still, sometimes I do wonder whether it’ll ever be enough.
