NASA: The World is Running Out of Water

More good news on the potable water front, from NASA via the Washington Post. We’re using groundwater faster than we’re replacing it.

Twenty-one of the world’s 37 largest aquifers — in locations from India and China to the United States and France — have passed their sustainability tipping points, meaning more water was removed than replaced during the decade-long study period, researchers announced Tuesday. Thirteen aquifers declined at rates that put them into the most troubled category. The researchers said this indicated a long-term problem that’s likely to worsen as reliance on aquifers grows.

This might not be our concern. It might only affect our kids, or their kids. So party on!

And we could always move to places where there’s more water. That’s why God gave us feet.
