And much higher than that if the beef industry had to pay for water.

               Water excerpt from Lester Brown's book

Although many analysts are concerned about the depletion of oil resources, the depletion of underground water resources poses a far greater threat to our future. While there are substitutes for oil, there are none for water. Indeed, modern humans lived a long time without oil, but we would live for only a matter of days without water.

Not only are there no substitutes for water, but the world needs vast amounts of it to produce food. As adults, each of us drinks nearly 4 liters of water a day in one form or another. But it takes 2,000 liters of water— 500 times as much— to produce the food we consume each day.

(That's mainly because we're eating the wrong food.)

How much is water worth? Depends on how thirsty you are and how much demand there is for water. If a gallon of water were auctioned off to a group of extremely thirsty, super-wealthy Americans, it might bring a million dollars or more. Just depends on how thirsty they are and how much water is available. It's all about supply & demand.

What's the most you ever paid for a quart of Evian? Maybe five bucks?

So, what's the story on water? Is it our most precious natural resource? I would say it has to right up there with the air that we breathe. As Lester Brown says, we lived for centuries without oil but could only live for a few days without water. I learned a few years ago, that there has been the exact same amount of water on the planet for millions of years. All generations of creatures have always consumed the same water.

Water reserves in trouble. The fresh water that we drink comes from rain, snow and underground wells and aquifers. The quantity of water remains the same, but the location of that water is changing---lakes, rivers, streams, reservoirs, and underground aquifers. Although many of those bodies of water are in danger, the one that is most scary is the last one---the underground aquifer. Click here to continue reading...
