Are Water Wars Coming?

In Sao Paulo, the Brazilian government is already preparing for “What if?”. What is the residents are in such a dire need of water that they plan an attack on their local water utility? Their army is already staging scenarios on how to handle such a situation. Role playing for what we all hope is not the inevitable. Can you imagine being so desperate for water that you have to go out and physically fight for it? In Africa alone, women spend billions of hours every year away from their homes and families, just to obtain clean drinking water. The struggles for many are fierce. Even in our home state of California, complete communities are without drinking water. Dwindling aquifers and wells drying up are causing panic situations for a lot of people. With water creation solutions out there, such as atmospheric water generation, communities leaders and governments need to be contacted and asked to use these solutions to solve the problems in their areas. There seems to be a lot of talk, but not a lot action. Preparing for “What if?” now, will prevent “What if?” from happening in the future.
