Day 66: Conservation

Today's Task: 1/30

"Conserve Water."



Sounds simple enough. :) Today, we should all cut off drippy faucets, abstain from needlessly watering the lawn, try to hold out on uneccessary showers, toilet trips and dishes/car/house cleaning. The hardest part is probably the suggestion to skip washing stuff. Even though I no longer own a car, I use water to clean everything else. Does anyone happen to know the exact statistics on water depletion or anything of the like?

Based on what I remember from school, You should conserve water in areas suffering from a drought JUST IN CASE it lasts longer than predicted. And the fact that it rains daily worldwide and the icecaps are supposedly melting (on the sides, but growing on the top from snow build up) then the earth as a whole is replenishing its own water supply.

So wait...

What are we conserving water for again? Is it really because people in overpopulated areas are going to migrate and want "our" water? I'd like someone to sit down and explain this to me in very REAL terms. Not using the words "what if" or "maybe".

I think it's more about saving water power and energy than saving the actual water. Just a thought.

Interesting blog! I will be following your progress and perhaps order this book myself one day. Good luck!
