Water is not readily available to many people in the world. It’s not always right there at their fingertips. Millions of people have to trek miles on foot and haul water over great distances on a daily basis. Water shortages, drought and careless misuse across the planet have only made things worse.
The simple act of turning a faucet handle is taken for granted here in the US. Across the country on a daily basis, countless examples may be cited of the human habit of treating precious resources with impunity.
As many times as I have seen this around the country, I have never seen a sidewalk grow from watering.
My question is; how would you react if you went to the faucets in your home and nothing came out? What if nothing was going to come out for the foreseeable future? Without water, food production goes away, transportation of goods and products are hindered, power disappears and people will react.
Please take a moment to view this slideshow. (Run your cursor over the bottom of the slides to see the captions.) If you are a sensible person, (and I think you are,) you will quickly realize why I wrote my latest book, Water.
Ethan Holmes is the author of Water, a fictional novel based on current facts about drought, water shortages, fracking and the pervasive lack of comprehensive conservation and recycling programs in many areas.
