My Inside Voice: WATERSHEDS DISAPPEARING

October 1, 2017

 

You will see I repeat “we are not doing brain surgery” a lot because when it comes to water we should all be experts in the ONLY element that keeps us alive.

 

Are we in denial? Are we scared? Are we really a wake? Are we dreaming? Or do we just not care?

 

I have been watching our planet lose some huge watersheds and no alarm bells. Do we keep thinking these great watersheds are going to magically appear back?

 

You do not have to be a brain surgeon to realize that something is going on with our water on this planet called Earth. In Canada 150 year ago we had so much water, 150 years ago all over world we had enough water for every country.

 

What has happened to all the water in a 150 year? Did the animals take all that water? Did Aliens take our water resources?

 

What happens to surface water happens to the ground water, confined aquifers, open aquifers, underground streams. There is so much evidence that the ground water is vanishing and is being polluted. The water quality of ground water is becoming just as poor quality of the surface water.

 

How can that be? It is in the ground? It has been in the ground for millions of years and never seen a human.

 

Is climate change a cover up for Human Beings not managing our Water Resources? Is climate change to be blamed? Are we passing the buck to the next 1 million generation?

 

The hardest question we need to ask ourselves “Can We Save Ourselves?”.
