Water shortages are likely to be trigger for wars, says UN chief Ban Ki Moon
I've hounded y'all about the dangers of water shortages. The Asia-Pacific Water Summit is addressing this and now the UN.
A struggle by nations to secure sources of clean water will be "potent fuel" for war, the first Asia-Pacific Water Summit heard yesterday. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon, told delegates from across the region that the planet faced a water crisis that was especially troubling for Asia. High population growth, rising consumption, pollution and poor water management posed significant threats, he said, adding that climate change was also making "a bad situation worse".
Don't ya just hate it when shit comes out of the blue to fuck ya? I know I do.
