How important is water for you? Do you ever waste water?
Look at the photo. It was taken in Aldeadavila (Salamanca) two years ago. I'd would have liked to have taken another photo this year, but could you imagine how it would be? What about the water levels? I'm sure the shortage of water would be evident.

Here's a video about how important water is. The thing is that sometimes we don't even think that water is present in many things and if we continue wasting it as well as destroying our own environment, we will be condemned to live a "thirsty life".
As it is said in the video,"There are 7 billion people to feed on the planet today and another 2 billion are expected to join by 2050. Statistics say that each of us drinks from 2 to 4 litres of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 litres of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litres."
What do you think? Can we change this situation? Will drought be worse in the future? Leave your comments.
