While many of us are counting our lucky stars that we dont live in California and dont have to worry about water shortages, this doesnt necessarily mean that we wont be facing the same issues in the future.
As the CBS news story states, "Water experts say groundwater is like a savings account – something you draw on in times of need. But savings accounts need to be replenished, and there is new evidence that so much water is being taken out, much of the world is in danger of a groundwater overdraft."
Unfortunately, Califonia has some of the best land for growing crops and agriculture. So while they continue to determine the best route to go, everyone in the United States will feel the immediate effects of drought if and when crops fall victim to the very dry weather.
And as the story also states another terrifying fact:
"A 2012 report from the director of National Intelligence warned that within 10 years "many countries important to the United States will experience water problems… that will risk instability and state failure…" and cited the possible "use of water as a weapon or to further terrorist objectives." So what can we do? It starts with us and being aware of the situation at hand.
