Our Global Water Crisis, Explained.

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, we look at our global freshwater crisis. Specifically, the video investigates how droughts in California and the Amazon lead to water scarcity for local residents, wildfires, and changing landscapes. These droughts are now exacerbated by climate change and will only make water scarcity and water access worse if drastic action is not taken to curb climate change. In addition, California’s Central Valley shows clearly how agriculture can make droughts even worse by drawing unsustainable levels of water out of surrounding aquifers. The water crisis around the globe and in Central Valley has become so bad that many residents are forced to get bottled water because their tap or well water is contaminated or non-existent. In short, we’re facing a global water crisis, a shortage of water that, if addressed through water conservation and climate change can be avoided.

The script for this video was written by NCSE Graduate Student Outreach Fellow Annie Stoeth.
