Fracking is messing with the water tables. Water is going to the center of the earth.

That plus climate change means we better figure something out. Sooner rather than later.

Some of us do not give up hope that easily.

Pessimism never solves anything.

Yes, there is a problem of freshwater availability. But where you so casually give up, others are working for solutions.

Your attitude is the exact reason why we have a problem in the first place: pessimistic people who just didn't care and said that there's nothing we could do to change things.

Um, does anyone realize that water follows a cycle? Water which is consumed is recycled back to the wild under the form of "waste", water which is evaporated up into clouds gets precipitated back down under the form of rain. Nothing is destroyed nor created - the only way for water to disappear from Earth is by transporting it outside Earth's atmosphere and gravitational pull.

Furthermore, according to your own source,


“This incorrect report about the health of the Canning Basin comes from a methodology that the department believes has produced inaccurate results,” he told Fairfax Media in a statement on Thursday.

“Reports that the Canning Basin is being depleted through over-use by mining differ significantly from the assessment of the Department of Water.

“NASA has not made contact with the WA Department of Water about the space agency’s groundwater study or its reported results, and this is disappointing as the department would have been able to correct some misleading information about the health of the water resources of the Canning Basin.”


Doom porn?



Ahh you beat me to it. Doom porn indeed. Ironically, we're paying NASA tax dollars to incite such hysteria.

In terms of solving the problem, I'd be all for a Roman aqueduct-like system, but unfortunately most of our rivers are polluted so I guess that's out of the question.

Pretty much this. Water is something hard to break and life learned to use everything we have here by reclicing. Also, we can also make more water thanks to quimistry.

isn't this a problem of distribution rather than scarcity?

And this morning I wake up to large freshwater waves from here to Chicago. Plenty of water plenty of DOOM PORN.
