Michael Grunwald, a correspondant for Time Magazine who has been commenting on Florida's attempt to restore the Everglades to their former glory commented, "There is an understanding that one day water will be as precious as oil."
I am sorry Mr Grunwald, but we can all live without oil, albeit with very different lifestyles, but try to live without water.
Water is the most precious commodity on this planet. We survived for thousands of years without oil, but we have always needed water.
Even in this modern age, there are still people who do not use oil or its products, but they need water every day. Needless to say, most of these people do not have enough water.
