While I have yet to see the film, and therefore cannot endorse it, I find the subject matter to be of upmost importance. Access to clean water, for everyone on the planet, is a (if not “the”) crucial issue of the this century, as there will be some sort of reckoning around this subject to be certain. In all truth, a part of me much rather be back at that pool living in relative ignorance of our dwindling water supply, but that is an ignorance none of us could likely afford (Check out this National Geographic water footprint calculator to get a handle on your personal water usage).
How has your awareness of the global water crisis impacted how you use and/or conserve water? What do you do to save and preserve water, either on a local or global level? Are you as scared as I am?
