Purifying water with reverse osmosis and water filtration is the number one focus for Angel Water and their technicians. We strive to create clean water for our customers and emphasize the importance of water education on a global scale.
We also educate customers on the importance of water education and water conservation. We know that the climate has been seriously harmed by destructive agricultural and economic practices.
Why is water education important?
As the scarcity of water becomes a more serious concern, we often wonder how that will impact communities on a global scale? According to the Scientific American, it could cause political upheaval, migrations and economic instability in multiple continents.
As populations boom and climate change becomes more intense, water scarcity is expected to increase globally, according to a report by the World Bank.
“Water is to adaptation what energy is to mitigation, and the challenges the world will face in adapting to water issues are enormous,” the report said.
While communities in Barrington and Northwest Chicagoland will be spared for now, water scarcity is expected hit sub-Saharan and Northern Africa, the Middle East and large parts of Asia. This trend is expected to continue if carbon emissions are not reduced.
Richard Damania, a lead economist at the World Bank and an author of the report, told reporters, “Climate change is really about hydrological change, and it’s really about water change.”
What are the global impacts of water scarcity?
More importantly, the Scientific American looks at the global impacts of what could happen when water is not flowing so freely. One of the major issues they touch on is the long-term effects of draining aquifers in sub-Saharan Africa.
With refugee camps popping up at an alarming rate, scientists wonder how much longer aquifers can sustain themselves and what will happen when they are drained.
Another water problem scientists face is how middle eastern countries will store water when drough hits.
“Countries like Pakistan can only store about 30 days’worth of water—that’s hugely inadequate when you look at climate change,” said David Michel, a nonresident fellow of the Environmental Security program at the Stimson Center, a nonprofit organization that works on U.S. security challenges.
