Water is life.
We are mostly made of water.

Of all the water in the world only about 2% is ‘fresh,’ water. The rest is salt. Currently we use 70% of our fresh water for agriculture and that is going to increase to unsustainable levels within the next 50 years. Do you see it yet? We have a problem of extinction level proportions. If we don’t solve this one… WE all DIE!
The problem we are facing now is not that enough water exists it is where it exists. In our country we have a surfeit of water in the east and dangerously low water resources in the west. Our problem is that we grow the preponderance of our food in the west (another problem) so water distribution is a major issue that needs to be resolved.
