World Without Water – Water Scarcity
Here is another episode from World Without Water, a series by Vanguard correspondents for the San Francisco based Current TV. The topic this week deals with water scarcity.
As the 21st Century begins as the Age of Drought, a look at three places–Florida, China, and Nevada–where dryness has gone big. In Florida, the world’s most famous swamp, the Everglades, has been turning into a salt flat. In China, vast problems with water pollution have been compounded in some areas by problems of having no water. And Nevada’s Lake Mead, once the largest reservoir in the world, now is given a 50% chance of drying up completely in the next dozen years.
Vanguard airs weekly on Current TV.
