The need of the Hour: Rainwater Harvesting
Water is becoming a limited natural resource in the world. In an article published on the National Geographic website about Fresh Water Crisis, it has mentioned that out of the 70% of water which is covering the earth, only 2.5% is suitable for drinking and just 1% of fresh water is easily accessible. In the same article, the author talks about how people are wasting this limited resource. The growing scarcity of water is due to the rapid growth of population, rising demand for food and cash crops, increasing urbanization and rising standard of living.
On the other hand, people are writing articles and papers about how to solve this scarcity issue and all the resources presented about conservation of water as a solution. I have heard people talking about the scarcity of water, but until the day I read the above-mentioned article, I didn't realize it was this bad. In another article, written by Michael Parfit, it was discussed that if there is no water, there is no life. We live by the grace of water. She talked about what would happen if the water scarcity problem is not solved. So there's a need to make people aware of this matter.
Rainwater harvesting is the need of the hour. If we let the rainwater go to waste, we soon will have no drinking water. The sources of freshwater are depleting at a rapid rate. We need to take serious steps and move to a sustainable way of living.
