Solving the Water Crisis: Smart Innovation - Future Water Supplies

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Sustainability / Environment Keynotes

An average person in the world uses 1,000 cubic metres a year for growing food, hygiene and drinking – equivalent to 40% of an Olympic swimming pool.

Yet 4,000 children die every day because the water supply is unclean and 40% of the world do not have access to tap water – even though many of them own a mobile phone.

If the poorest nations gain a standard of living equivalent to wealthy nations today, then water demand will be three times the figure of 3,350 cubic kilometres seen in 2000.

True Cost of Global Warming - Economic Impact

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Sustainability / Environment Keynotes

The truth is that there are very few solid facts when it comes to global warming science.  Loads of data, loads of opinions, loads of theories and models of the future, but very little history.  And that is what we need more of to be 100% sure. Extreme statements and dire warnings have already gripped the imagination of billions of people.  But what is the truth?  What is the real evidence linking carbon dioxide to climate change, and how can we be sure this is mainly due to human activity, and not some massive over-reaction drummed up by eco-freaks and business speculators.  How hot will things really have to get before there is a catastrophe?  Are we already too late to change the future?
