‘The End of Water As We Know It’ with Argonne National Lab Scientist Dr. Seth Darling
Even though water is most vital for survival the status of depletion or contamination is not well known to the public and there are very few mechanisms in place world wide for water protection and access to water as a human right. In this May 18, 2016, talk valuable information is introduced to support and inspire local efforts. Dr. Darling updates statistics about the water embedded in certain products. He also makes an interesting connection between energy production and water and surprises us with research that shows how the energy industry withdraws 200 billion gallons of water per day in the US alone. In Part ONE he spoke about increasing water depletion while economists project that water demand will rise by at least 55% by 2050.
In Part TWO Dr. Darling is turning to science, describing the amazing characteristics of water as well as its global history. Also included are a few of the questions that he answered at the end of his talk. They range from fracking to different methods of water cleaning and desalinization
