Securing our shared water future amidst climate disruption | Seth Darling | TEDxGateway
Dan Ball Interview W/ North Carolina’s 11th District Congressman, Madison Cawthorn
“Did you know the process of developing 1 Kilogram of paper requires 326 litres of water?”
Water is undoubtedly the elixir of life and a vital resource for our survival. Unfortunately, it is running out.
India and the United States get more than half of their water for irrigation from underground, but what would happen when the ground water depletes?
Seth Darling takes a closer look at sustainable methods and technologies to use water more efficiently, and its integration of water corporations and technology.
