It’s All About the Water

It all comes down to water:

Two-thirds of the world’s population will face a lack of water in less than 20 years, if current trends in climate change, population growth, rural to urban migration and consumption continue, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro warned today.

Worth noting that, given climate change commitment, only three of those four, involving the demand side of water, are actionable on a 20-year time scale. We’d better get on it.
