Water Crisis in the Media Part II
This is the link to the second part of the news report that I posted last week. This report focuses on the effects of the water shortage in one country in particular, in this case, Spain. It is eye-opening because most people think that the water shortage only affects third world countries, but, as shown in this report, it is having a massive effect on developed countries as well. Another dire issue that this report shows but does not fully go into is that water is not only creating international conflict, it is causing tensions among different regions of the same country. If one sophisticated country cannot even share their water among themselves to further agriculture that they all rely on, what does that mean for the global water community? People are going to have to learn to share if we want to come up with a solution to the water crisis.
