Water shortages ahead – another side effect of population growth and man-made climate change!


England is facing water supply shortages by 2050 unless rapid action is taken to curb water use and wastage, the Environment Agency has warned. Its new report says enough water to meet the needs of 20 million people is lost through leakage every day. Population growth and the impact of climate change are expected to add to supply pressures. The agency wants people to have a personal water target and has urged them to use water more wisely at home.

Well, well, well – more people and man-made climate change (partly a result of more people) – what do we get water problems!

Time to get serious about population and misplaced economic growth and remind growth deniers of the problem!
