By: Aneece Douglas Water scarcity Is A world-wide Problem That We Face Today!
Seriously people?!! Are we really going to have to resort to towing icebergs around the earth like some entrepreneurs think? Did You Know? Water Scarcity Types of water scarcity: When there is not enough water to meet demand
When there is not enough money to access it and use it
Where your leaders take away your right to water Causes of
Water Scarcity Climate
Changes Food Production
& Land Use Population
Growth Water Quality & Demand Water Privatization Physical:
Political: In America we take water for granted because we don't have water shortages YET... We are wasting water by:
Dumping out usable drinking water
Taking long showers
Not fixing leaky faucets
Not using low-flow toilets & shower heads
We are polluting water by:
Dumping vegetable oil down the drain
Dumping waste from factories
We grow crops in dry climates instead of grazing animals
It takes almost 60 billion gallons of water to grow corn in Oklahoma! 1/4 of people in developing countries don't have the money or means to get water 1/5 of the world's population does not have enough water Is This What We Will Resort To? Water Related Diseases Since the water shortages have been happening all over the place, people store water in their homes. The mosquitoes come with diseases such as malaria and dengue fever. DO NOT leave uncapped water anywhere or the mosquitoes will come in and possibly make you very sick. Corporations plan to control 70% of our water in the next 10 years Water Related Diseases Guinea worms are worms live in dirty water. They can kill you but it is rare. The Guinea worm will go into you and worm out of your skin. How Can We Help?

You could stop paying for plastic water bottles and use water bottles that can be re-used.
You can turn the tap off when you brush your teeth, and take shorter showers.
You can share this wonderful resource, and try to conserve it by using water conservation technologies.

Some water might come from mountain streams, but some may just come right from the tap!
Bottled water takes resources -
47 million gallons of oil
1.5 million tons of plastic waste
