Living in the southwestern desert makes me appreciate water more than I did previously. However this figure really brings it down to Earth (so to speak). Considering how completely, totally, and utterly we rely on water and how little there actually is, you would think we would be better job of looking after it. Clearly spilling bunch of oil in it is a bad idea, heating the atmosphere is a bad idea, interfering in an way is a bad idea. Maybe this sort of work will make the necessary impact.
