A Simple Soul....18th April, 2019
WATER: I see the head of the Environment Agency is warning that we will not have enough water to meet demand within 25 years. Climate change and population growth it seems is the cause. We have known this for many years, and even this Simple Soul commented on this in my musings a few years ago. Governments can spend billions on transport projects, but no one seems to realise we need a few more reservoirs to meet increased demand. More worrying is that some scientists have been warning if the population increases at current rates, civilisation as we know it will come to and end, due to a lack of food within 100 years. Some of you younger readers may want to think of planning a trip to Mars. Beam me up, Scotty.
