Sharing the World’s Water Supply

Sharing the World’s Water Supply thumbnail

Safe and readily available water is a crucial aspect for public health, but almost a billion people around the world lack basic access to such a necessity. In fact, 2 billion people globally rely on water sources that have been contaminated by harmful chemicals or bacteria. By the year 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water stressed areas. Freshwater makes up less than 1% of the global water supply, and due to a wide number of factors, we are left with less and less of a supply of it. Water is one of the worlds most precious resources, and without it, we cannot survive.

The Water Project is an organization dedicated to solving the world’s water crisis. For most of us, access to clean, quality water is something we mainly take for granted. However, in many parts of the United States, including California, water scarcity is only continuing to become more prevalent of a problem. Water scarcity is a growing issue, and with more people putting in increasing demands on the already limited supply, the cost and effort to maintain these levels of access will only increase. At The Water Project, their main goal is to spread awareness of water use, and help those who don’t have access to this precious resource.

Water

The Water Project is currently working on projects around the world, in hopes of partnering with local teams to develop clean water programs. They place a strong emphasis on investing in leadership, by equipping, training, and funding Non-Governmental Organizations who can help people establish access to clean water, as well as teaching them how they can maintain it over time.

While they are currently working on hundreds of projects around the world, their current highlighted project is taking place at Muleche Primary School in Shinyalu, Kenya. This school has a total enrollment of 434 students, including 225 girls and 209 boys. Currently, there is no water source on the school grounds, which contributes to unhygienic situations. The only nearby source of water comes from a slow-moving river, which has a bad odor, and many refuse to drink from it.

In order to help with this situation, The Water Project plans to spend two days educating teachers and students about safe hygiene and sanitation practices, as well as having water conservation lessons. Next, they plan to install hand-washing stations with 50-liter plastic barrels that will allow the students to practice safe hygiene. Finally, a rainwater catching tank will be installed, allowing the students to safely store and use clean water.

This is just one of hundreds of projects being done by The Water Project. While the world’s freshwater supply is limited, it does not mean people should go without these this necessity. The Water Project is always looking for people to help them complete new water programs for those in need. Currently, there are over 250 communities in need of immediate water project funding. The Water Project has 4 levels of membership, each offering a unique way to share in on the experience of giving people access to clean water.

    Shouldn’t track the hell of the planet for more oil? That should provide more fresh, potable water for us to consume.
    Oh, it would increase GNP too, needing to purchase all those filtering systems to remove nasty cancer causing agents left behind.
    Digging our own grave. Humans no better than yeast.

    For decades oil tankers provided the first world with oil, often to the tune of 50 liters per week per car to hundreds of millions.

    In the outgoing oil age these oil tankers could acquire a second lease on life and play an important role in providing fresh water to areas where water is scarce.

    The river Rhine for instance with a flow of ca. 2500 m3/sec could (theoretically) fill the largest oil tanker in the world with fresh water in a matter of minutes.

    Sure cloghard…fill the world in minutes.
    LOL….boy, you are a funny guy.

    An oil tanker is not “the world”.

    Anything substantial to add or do you prefer to remain at the smearing level?

  5. Shortend on Sat, 3rd Mar 2018 9:36 am 

    Oh, that’s correct…so what?
    Look at the Colorado River and what we did to it by providing fresh water to the humans.
    Watch out Rhine River…Cloghead has the same plans for you. LOL

    Currently this water is streaming into the North Sea.

    And you want to deprive the third world of this water? What kind of person are you?

    Claqua, a few years back we caught some tanKers in the Great Lakes stealing our water, coming in empty and leaving full without any stopovers. Can’t remember what country they were from. Probably the Dutch.

    Stop lying millimind. You yourself admit that America is heading for the gutter (which you love). And the reason is third world immigration.

    Why would a Dutch tanker make a giant expensive detour to the US to fetch water when we have plenty of our own. Our problem is too much water, not too little.

    If you want your economy to go in the gutter than keep the immigrants out! Then maybe you can become like them when you lose your job or home.

    That’s ok millimind. Keep destroying America for us Eurasians with third world immigration. One competitor less. And as an additional advantage, your tribe will no longer have a stick to threaten the rest of the world with. I thought you were all so smart.lol

    Your tribe has done nothing else than promoting immigration in the 20th century:

    And you admitted two days ago that you love to see whitey destroyed.

    Give us in Europe a call when the inevitable Civil War 2.0 will start. We don’t want to miss that event for anything in the world. It has been peace for too long already. Time to get some muscle flexed. On your soil.

    But moving vast quantities of water is not simple or cheap, and thus not realistic, experts say. Mostly, it’s too costly and political.

    However, these dreamed-up concepts show that a quiet water crisis is getting more desperate.

    “We will go to any lengths to avoid confronting the reality of water shortages,” said Arizona State University law professor Robert Glennon, author of the book “Unquenchable.”

    “What all those zany ideas suggest are the traditional beliefs that we can control nature and there must be some oasis out there where we can go to, to import water.”
    But those are mirages, he said – tempting, but not realistic
    Water weighs a lot – about 8.3 pounds per gallon – so moving massive amounts, often up mountains, costs a lot, Glennon said. Gleick notes that conservation and efficiency are cheaper
    “People are concerned about water rights. Even in eastern water-rich states, you don’t want to be giving it away,” said Robert Holmes, who deals with the problem of too much water. He is the national flood hazard coordinator for the U.S. Geological Survey.

    University of Colorado natural hazards professor Kathleen Tierney put it more bluntly: “As we say in Colorado, whiskey is for drinking, water is for fighting over

    Europe, that’s the Roman Empire and 500 years of global empires. You seriously think that we are interested in staying colonized by a bunch of depressed bush-rangers without identity much longer.ROFL

    Both Macron and Berlusconi want a European army. And once we have Merkel out of the way, her successor no doubt will go along.

    Get out of the way, sunny.
