Drinking Water on Earth, But Not for All

300,000 children die every year from illnesses linked to consuming non-potable water. It is one of the planet’s major problems and it doesn’t seem to be diminishing in our current world. Another alarming statistic: it seems that almost one third of the inhabitants of this planet do not have access to water that is clean enough to prevent them from contracting, among other things, cholera, dysentery, hepatitis A, or typhoid fever …

The bad news is that this figure may double in the decades to come, and if we add the effects of climate change, which are thought to be coming in the next thirty years and have already been making themselves felt for some time, there aren’t many options left, other than to bathe in a pool of wine, like the Japanese, and forget the sad wretchedness of this world.
