Water Crisis on the Blue Planet: What Water’s Past tells us about Humanity’s Future
Join us on World Water Day as Nicholas Breyfogle explores the historical roots of today’s global water crisis and the ways in which humanity’s relationship with water has changed over time. Across human history and throughout this very diverse planet, water has defined every aspect of human life: from the molecular, biological, and ecological to the cultural, religious, economic, and political. Water stands at the foundation of most of what we do as humans: in irrigation and agriculture; waste and sanitation; drinking and disease; floods and droughts; fishing and other food supplies; travel, transportation, and discovery; scientific study; water pollution and conservation; dam building and hydroelectricity; faith and religion; in the setting of boundaries and borders; and wars and diplomacy. At the same time, water resources—the need for clean and accessible water supplies for drinking, agriculture, and power production—will likely represent one of the most complicated dilemmas of the twenty-first century.
