A World of Water Woes
This is a must-read article from Business Week talking about the shortages of useable water that are already happening throughout the world. Here, it isn't so bad, except of the shortfalls in water in the Southwest, and increasingly, the Southeast. The article doesn't really mention it, but I know that Georgia has serious water shortages. And if you think Africa's situation is bad now, wait until the middle of the century, where there's projected to be vast shortages throughout the entire continent. So read this article, it's a nice and sobering science lesson.
