March 22: World Water Day

Today is World Water Day. Multinational organizations have set aside this day officially to remind us that the access to clean and safe water for much of the world’s population is becoming a scarce commodity. More often than not, the poorest and the most underserved populations in remote rural areas face the crisis in the worst way.

Matt Damon’s non-profit water.org tackles water accessibility issues in Haiti and he’s just put out a video on Youtube. A lot of productive work can be done so that we don’t end up in that crack-pot apocalyptic scenario in Waterworld.
