Water Shortages, Droughts, Floods, and Cowboys Transporting Icebergs

Water is a hot issue today. No matter where you live, it seems like there’s not enough or too much.  What’s going on? Are we actually seeing important changes or is today’s hyper-connected society just making us feel like catastrophes are happening constantly?

The story explains how a third of Americans won’t be able to afford to pay for their water by 2020.

The high costs are mostly due to out dated infrastructure and water pipe networks that need to be upgraded around the country. You can see water districts are already trying to increase water bill rates by 83% in Sacramento.

They’ve got massive flooding and way too much water. Events have been canceled in New York since the lake is dangerous. Even recreational boaters have been negatively impacted and are delaying going out in the water.

Now Nestle’s Arrowhead water has been called out with challenges around how much money they’re making by bottling and selling California’s water. Is this because public agencies and government entities have dropped the ball? You can decide for yourself about the sustainability of water and how renewable of a resource it is. How much profit should gigantic multinational businesses be allowed to gain from public natural resources?

However, they’ve got enough money to make it feasible to bring an iceberg to the UAE. Will they do it? Take a gander at this story for more on how these iceberg cowboys are hoping to be the first folks to tow an iceberg thousands of miles and kilometers.
