Water scarcity is a problem of the future. There are many concerns in the world today, and water scarcity is currently in the backseat. Our world can only address so many problems at a time, and we tend to put them off until the need to find a solution becomes dire. All the research and projections we have found show that this will indeed be a dire situation in as early as 20 years from now. Children are already dying in large numbers in poverty-stricken regions due to preventable waterborne illness, and the destruction of natural ecosystems is greatly reducing fresh water biodiversity. These effects will continue to snowball until a viable global solution is implemented. As the situation stands now, it is impossible to end with an answer, only another question. What will your children drink?
