On the east coast we’ve been inundated with water in recent times but much of the world has been suffering from a lack of water.
Millions of people in poorer countries are being used as slaves to make products to supply the needs and wants of richer countries. While making all these products for us a huge amount of water is used and polluted but the local people live in poverty and have very little to sustain them.
Water is so precious to the natural world. The other creatures that we share the planet with don’t have dishwashers or washing machines etc – they’re just trying to survive.
I’ve always been a positive person but I sadly believe that we are now past the tipping point and that we, in the ‘developed’ world, are culpable because of our greed and overconsumption. If we weren’t so stupid and full of ourselves we would have worked this out many years ago.
