A Presentation By Tony Green

dreamstime xs 25255669 Displaced Angolan Carrying WaterNatural gas production is at an all-time high which has led to the lowest gas prices in a generation. Many suspect the United States will eventually be the world’s largest exporter of natural gas. The process of hydraulic fracturing has been one of the primary reasons for the abundant supply of natural gas.

Of all of the water in world, only 3.5% is freshwater suitable for drinking, and less than .001% is available throughout the planets’ rivers, lakes, and streams. As populations rise, and the effect of global climate are felt, surface temperatures will rise and water will become scarcer. The United Nations has stated that conflicts between rival countries could arise over access to water supplies. As water shortages become increasingly urgent, countries may resort to violence to quench their thirsts.

Hear about how innovative water technologies are the key to ensuring that nations of the world will never come to a point where wars will be waged for the right of people to have access to safe drinking water. I will cover questions such as:

  • Why water has been described as the next oil
  • The effects of climate change on our drinking water supply
  • What technologies are available to increase the availability of drinking water
  • Examples of where collaboration has prevented conflicts over water
  • The key to preventing future wars over our drinking water supply
