What can be done to help solve the worldwide fresh water shortage?
I hardly think about the worldwide fresh water shortage, and that's simply because Japan is full with fresh water. But it doesn't mean that Japanese people don't have to think about the worldwide problem. I'd like to talk about three steps that can be a solution.
First, we have to stop deforestation. It's well known that forests generate water, but we keep destroying them. When we use natural resources, we need to care about how they are generated. The balance between supply and demand is essential. Consumption only will lead to a big issue.
Second, we need to cooperate each other. Developed nations need to share its technology and information with arid nations. I've seen a person working in a developed country, digging the ground to find a water vein. Any help will do for a starter, I guess.
Third, we have to take action to stop global warming. It's obvious that global warming has a great impact on water supply.We cannot ignore that futile lands are changing into deserts at an alarming rate.
Any event has a reason. We tend to focus on a phenomenon in front of us, yet we must learn that everything has cause and effect. I hope future generation will have enough fresh water anytime and anywhere.
