Face It: You Don't Care That Much About Water

Providing everyone, everywhere with enough clean water may be the most difficult problem we humans have ever faced.

Still, Americans use hundreds of gallons of water every day without thinking. (Especially in drought-stricken California.)

I think that if we can learn to love our water, it just might save our lives. So I decided to give a talk about it.

What do you think we should do to make water more available and mores sustainable?
