WATER our most precious resource

1868 ratings | 372032 views
Water is a precious, yet finite resource essential for life, with no adequate substitute. Supplying and allocating water of adequate quality and in sufficient quantity is one of the major challenges facing society today. Such challenges are creating a giant market for water solutions. Watch our video goo.gl/6F2XJm to find out more about the challenges and opportunities that exist by addressing water scarcity.

It is encouraging to me to see private industry getting into water supply and distribution. So often the economics of water get buried under emotional pleading and calls for reduced consumption. It is a difficult transition from a situation of a plentiful, free, shared resource to one where there is not enough to go around and still be "free". That's when converting to a market commodity will have the most beneficial effect, but with the screams of pain from those who are used to having the commodity for "free".

It surprises me when you hear that you can produce drinking water from salt water but the only reason we don’t do it is because it’s to expensive. Which is odd I mean you could invest in the technology I mean it’s not like we need it to survive

If ppl would stop eating meat and eggs & milk it would also help against the water shortage. AND everyone would be healthier AND no animals would be killed anymore. So everyone can live in peace

water in australia is only scarce in the middle but no where else in australia
Demetris Kalambokis (5 months ago)
Jamie Constable In 15 years you wont have water in Australia. Just rethink of your "no where else" statement.

this video helped me visualise things which on paper are just volatile. the start of the video is so real that I felt I was in the subject totally i.e in water.the informative part shown with the help of a dropper about the fresh water and salt water. usable and unusable part was such that it connected me way back in laboratory doing experiments with water. the various places where water is used is shown as though we are playing video game of various levels. very interesting fact highlighted was the 0.007% of water is safe for consumption which has to be shared amongst a million of people.the globe shown in the video was also very interestingly rotated and shown about the population pace country has and the demand for water is increasing day by day.the video highlighted how man has changed over the years in the food habits in an animated cartoon form and in the form of diagrams , where the awareness is put to high standards where in even a child would understand the importance of saving water.the comparison of water consumption with varying food habits has been nicely presented and makes me feel as though I was in a supermarket and knew exactly what me and my friends and family have to choose as a diet for a healthier life in the bargain how automatically water should be saved. the various ways how to save and purify water ,how industries could use the waste water recycle and use it for further processes are nicely depicted in the form of moving picture readily understood and interestingly put forth. many things about water wastage were heard by me ,but the picture exactly made me imagine how certain things could be done and connected to avoid leakages.every drop shown in the animation form gives me the sense of responsibility that something precious is lost.the desalination process adopted by many countries like Singapore and many advanced countries to reduce wastage of water was very informative.the punch -the final one was really good-"long term growth". the most important knowledge with videos is the state of art and generation to come forth are all attached to e- technology.surely the coming generation would find nothing interesting on paper.phones and networking have become a portal to create awareness among students as students can't do without them.with this video teacher can make their lecture interesting for students and actually make them aware of the amount of water which we waste is much more than amount of water we use.thanking you for making me visualise things in interesting way.

Water is infinite.. The governments rather play war games and blame each other. I used to work in High purity water ,even the nastiest flood waters can be reclaimed to be safer than the toxic formula they send to you now. Filtration,Ultraviolet light,Ozone , Ion exchange. are Technology of all this has been around for decades. Two hydrogen molecules one oxygen molecule have a threesome. So sad the propaganda has been so successful as to remove critical thinking . (H2O )Now don't hurt yourself waking up .

how to government fixes these things:kill half of the population with a nuke or some sort of disease so resources dont get used up as much then that cyce repeats again again and again

Ragnhildr I wont stand on your stupid statement (it's a fact that big wars reduce population) but I'll give you some food for thought on your "cycle" maths. Next big war will probably be the last for the human kind. A lot of countries have the weapons to polute the water or vanish countries from the map, not to mention the polution and the diseases of the dead people. The numbers do not have the same proportions comparing with 50 or 100 years ago: you can't compare 1 Billion with 8B+ population and you can't compare arrows with nuclear weapons, can you? Or Roman and Ottoman Empire with... goverment decisions?

So then people are worse off today than they were 100 years ago. Right? Or 50 years ago? No... not even close. People in all countries around the world are better off today... that's because we don't have fewer resources. And that's "resources" - not natural resources. There's a difference. Here's another clue for you: water doesn't get used up. All the water that is here today was here a million years ago (give or take a little from extraterrestrial impacts and the natural loss to space). Seriously... did we learn nothing in school? But hey, if you really believe that, you can be the first to commit suicide in the name of saving the planet? No? I didn't think so.

Turning on the tap is very easy to do, most people don't realise just how much hard work goes into collecting and cleaning our drinking water, the more people there are on the planet, the more drinkable water will be drunk and at the rate we're going we could be in trouble in the non too distant future.We are made up of approximately 60% water, so it's not as if we can do without it.

If you can't afford water you have no reason to live. I love corporate military America! They've got people high on stupid for any of this to make sense. Water and air is free and people need to stop allowing the same oil scumbags that dump on everything that the earth has always produced without manipulation. They've raped and murdered land for a profit, now thats all sucked dry they conjure up a method to continue the slavery by hijacking and controlling our life. The same industry who poison our freshwater and takes the only water source from impoverished villages? And whos population is more deserving? As always the scum who produce nothing of substance will benefit for reasons based on entitlement. Who believes any of this fake earth data graphics bullshit conducted to only spew the outcome of what is written in federal institution documentation which was right after they got brainwashed by nazi control freaks!

Water our most precious resource, indeed true. Nicely done in this 5 min video. I am interested to understand more about the desalination technologies Robeco is investing in.
Nope Nipe (2 months ago)
Death24 Because without water, there can be no food to begin with. Making the availability of water priority #1. Air is much more available than clean water, thus making it air a less precious resource. The importance of water and its limited supply makes it the most precious resource. Life begins with water.
Summer Martinez (3 months ago)
i agree Urs Bolt

Really? Why? Because people say it is so? Based on what criteria? I can live for several days without water. I cannot live for more than a minute without air. So is air our most precious resource? Or because air is typically free (unless we want to filter out as many pollutants as we possibly can) we don't concern ourselves with it. Funny, water is also really really cheap. In fact, in my neighborhood, I simply pay for the electricity to pump it out of the ground. Or, I can go buy a gallon of water for less than $1 at the grocery. Hardly the making of a precious resource. That's not to say that there aren't people living in places where actual potable water is hard to come by. But in those places with reliable access to water, water is exceedingly cheap. A minimum wage earner in a country like the UK spends less than 0.1% of his income on water. Hardly what would be considered our most precious resource. Food certainly ranks higher. Where's the "Food, our most precious resource" video?
