Clean water Justin tucker

Part 1

Clean water is running low!!!!

1.2 billion people already suffer from severe water shortages around all parts of the world.

This number is expected to reach 1.8 million by the next decade

While nearly 70% of the world is water, only 2.5% of that water is fresh. And of that 2.5%, only 1% is easily accessible for humans.

Just for numbers sake, only 0.007 percent of the earths water can be used to fuel and feed its 6.9 billion people.

This is a shocking fact, but we the people need to know how dangerous this is

People are resorting to dirty water to quench their thirst and bath themselves. Its consequences are very dangerous as you can see by these pictures.

Part 2

What is going on to solve this?

With Earth running short on water, the most reasonable solution would be to take saltwater from oceans and convert it into clean, healthy water for everybody

Half the world's population lives with 65 miles of and ocean

Saltwater accounts for over 97% of the earth. So we need to find ways to convert this saltwater into usable clean drinking water.

Part 3

Which country is affected project?

Pakistan is the most affected by the water crisis in the world. Looking back, Pakistan is still recovering from a heat wave that killed over 1250 people. After that, the country went through torrential rains and flooding which killed an additional 169 people.

"Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink." -Samuel Taylor Coleridge

In the next ten years, about 2.9 billion people in multiple countries will face water shortages that will destabilize and jeopardize the very existence of some countries, including Pakistan.
