A Global Water Shortage?
"...In fewer than 25 years, says the UN Environment Programme, two-thirds of the world's population will live in 'water-stressed' countries where there is not enough water per person to be sure in future of secure supplies and healthy rivers and lakes... Forget the bold talk of attempts to colonise space before the Earth expires. The great race of our time is already under way all round the world. Unseen and unreported, teams of specialists are working on controversial projects to replumb the planet and avert the deepening of a catastrophe that is already claiming the life of one child every 15 seconds."
