  1. The depletion of groundwater resources globally is the No.1 environmental issue facing the world over the next 30 years. It trumps climate change, fracking, and even over-fishing. The reason is simple: from a geological perspective, these are fossil waters. Many of them were derived from the melting of the glaciers, and they are now hydrologically isolated from the infiltration from above. 70-90% of groundwater is utilized for irrigation, with over 75% of that being lost to evaporation and runoff. The loss of this resource, particularly in the Ganges River aquifer in India and the aquifers in Sub-Saharan Africa will result in significant food shortages and potential famine. While Climate change gets all of the attention; to quote Hooper from Jaws; “…unless you deal with this problem! … to ignore this particular problem until it swims up and bites you IN THE A$$!”
