World Water Day: Water Scarcity, Conservation and Tools

Yesterday was World Water day and I was remiss in commenting.  My stats are often lies or damn lies, but I’ve heard that 1% of the worlds water is drinkable.  .05% of the worlds water is locked up in ice caps, leaving .05% to drink. The US Census Board estimates that the world population in 2012 is 7.002 billion on the earth and growing.  Global industrialization is growing along and with it are consumption and pollution of water.  With these contending forces drinking water resource scarcity rises.  The human body can last roughly 3 days without water (some places much less).  Realistic solutions fall in the development of more efficient water systems, reducing water waste and pollution as well as inventive ways to access water like rainwater harvesting.
