An Emerging World Water Crisis

j0411681.jpgI found this informative article at MSNBC today discussing the water crisis emerging around the world.

More than a billion people worldwide lack clean water, most of them in developing countries. The least fortunate may devote whole days to finding some.

It is clear that as global warming dries out the world’s climate; future wars will not be fought over issues like terrorism. I believe it is water, the most basic of human necessities, that will drive war(s) of the future. Terrorism quickly pales as an issue in comparison to the disaster the lack of water will create for mankind.

To avoid appearing like an uncaring, environment bully and poor world neighbour; it is vital for Canada (a country with a noticeable, respectable supply of fresh water) to be seen as a leader on fighting global climate change.
