Water weighs more than two- thirds of our humanbody.
We cannot survive without water and air. We do have plenty of wateravailable for us, but most of the available water doesn’t meet thequalification for us to drink and use. Virtual water refers to water used whenfood or other things are produced, but in this process, water is behind thescene, so we could not see water is being used virtually. Peak water limit isan idea of that we are running out of our water limits, not just the wateravailability, but also the quality of water. I do believe these two conceptsare of the concern to us. Because water is so important to us. We do have a lotof water to use in our generation, but we need to think about our nextgeneration.
We also need to consider the consequences of taking too much waterfrom the nature. The result of my footprintcalculation is 1148 cubic meters per year. I am very surprised by this result.Most of my water usage goes to food consumption. This is a huge numberespecially we have 7.5 billion people living in the world. I think the UnitedStates is doing a great job on water management compare to other countries likeJapan and China.
But the quality of water in the United States is a worry. In conclusion, water resource isvery limit and precious. Please reduce water usage and be appreciated whatnature gives to us.
