Water Shortage: Why Are We Running Out of ‘Blue Gold’?

water shortage

Our planet is experiencing an unprecedented water shortage. There are many reasons for this, but they all have to do with man – and climate change. First of all, world population is growing and this leads to an increase of water demand. In addition, as a consequence of global warming, droughts are more frequent and ice glaciers melt faster. As a result, we are losing drinking water and increasing the amount of sea water that is unusable for life.
