What is one thing every single living thing needs to survive? Water. This article says that people are depleting the fresh water sources faster than they can be replenished. This article also mentions that agriculture is largely to blame for this. Some of the statistics are almost unbelievable. Groundwater use has almost tripled in the last 50 years and it would take 54 more times as much rainfall as it now receives to replenish it at the rate we are using it. In Australia, the water source is being depleted by not only agriculture, but also by illegal bores. This area has such low rainfall that once that once this water is drained, it is gone. The key challenge that come from this is how are we going to manage to feed the rising population and at the same time manage the fresh water resources? I can’t say I have any ideas, but I know that is a major problem in the world today. I think that eventually with our technology and brains, that we will think of something to help protect our fresh water resources.
