Faced With a Declining Water Supply, Ideas Start Rolling

water333.jpgGiven our insatiable appetite for fresh water, we’re coming very close to conflict over this resource which is more precious than oil. The Financial Times reports today (via WBCSD)on a variety of ideas that are being used to reduce water consumption from industry. It’s a start – after all efficiency is the first step toward real environmental improvements. The best thing about this first step, of course, is that it also has financial bottom-line incentives to getting implemented: efficiency & innocation = more profit. Of course, efficiency won’t create more fresh water, but it’s heartening to see the FT reporting on this.
