In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson

    We can pretend it's not happening until we can't pretend any more.

    I believe in every climate change that is going on around us and we are not taking it seriously.

    I agree with @Bubbly @roshanjny. Especially in the Himalayas, it is very obvious that the climate is changing and making a big impact.

    Clean drinking water is not available in many countries and it is going to become a big disaster in upcoming days as water is a big carrier of many germs. Who is thinking about it?

    Clean drinking water is perhaps a separate issue @Bubbly. As long as there is water, there is the technology available to make it potable. It's more a case of priorities and supply.

    @mheredge I don't see any chances of new technology related to clean water. Do you know 80 to 90 percentage diseases are due to water in many Asian countries. People don't even have access to the drinking water. In Thakparker (a dessert area in Pakistan), women travel for long to fetch some water for drinking.

    @Bubbly what about desalination?

    I visited an island off Cannes a week or so back and was wondering how they managed with drinking water. I was told that they have a desalination plant and use sea water that is processed to make it potable.

    When I Googled desalination, I learned that the saline water of the Thames is treated in the UK to provide additional drinking water for up to a million people per day.


    This is another desalination plant in Barcelona that uses reverse osmosis.

    The technology is there.
