Here in my part of the world, we are experiencing water shortages. And it would seem that they are not going to go away. The population is growing faster than the infrastructure. Suddenly a commodity we took for granted (a great surprise to me when I came to the city from a farm!) is no longer invisible. We have to make it a focus, and plan and organise to conserve it. Not a moment too late, of couse. But it was with interest then, that I read this article while researching for my other blog, Pivotal News Bytes. It asks Is water the next oil? And it certainly rings true.
