Another Situation.....

Hi! Dylan here. Our blog really highlights global warming but I want to shed some light on another extremely terrible situation. The World Water Crisis is a global struggle for water. I bet you didn't know this, but 1.1 billion people do not have access to clean water. That's 3x the population of the United States. People in Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America have to lap water out of DIRT to survive. They are literally drinking mud. This crisis kills people, a lot of people. In fact, the World Water Crisis kills 3.4 million people a year. Thats roughly 9,315 people a day. Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people that have water-borne diseases. These diseases include diarrhea, guinea worms, cholera, typhoid fever, and hepatitis A. On the other hand, Google for me, "Stockton, CA Water Privatization" Read about the good city of Stockton and how the Water Crisis changed it. Then comment on what you think of the World Water Crisis. Look, everyone, the Water Crisis isn't going to end without everybody's help. Where money stops, awareness doesn't. So do me a favor and go tell someone today, whether it's at work or school, about the World Water Crisis. And eventually, awareness will end the World Water Crisis. Once again, this is Dylan, signing off.
