Are we running out of water?

“To a water expert, looking ahead is like the view from a locomotive, 10 seconds before the train wreck. Sometime in the coming century, the increasing human demand for water, the increasing scarcity of water due to climate warming, and one of the long droughts of past centuries will collide, and Albertans will learn first-hand what water scarcity is all about. Water scarcity will become one of the most important economic and environmental issues of the 21st century in the western prairie provinces”

Dr. David Schindler, A Killam Memorial Professor of Ecology at the University of Alberta in “The Myth of Abundant Canadian Water”
