Ecology Lab California is currently in a water crisis where we are in a loss of water. Californians need a solution to this water crisis or else the entire state may be stuck without water to supply our water needs. Water is necessary in all of California to maintain a sustainable biodiversity. In order to survive, we need to figure out ways to reduce water use in California, which is famous for its farming and weather.
Have you ever thought of how we can all conserve water? Do you ask yourself sometimes will we ever run out of water? When you ask people the same questions a majority will give you the response “ I don’t know…” In Lana Mazahreh’s speech “3 thoughtful ways to conserve water,” she talks about three lessons we can take into our hands to conserve water.

Drought It’s been years since water came out of my faucet and days since my last drink of water. Even if I did have water would it be worth the risk? Our people have become diseased. Our animals are suffering and we have to walk miles and miles until we find “adequate” water.
The human species since the dawn of time has possessed the ability to overcome and adapt to numerous challenges. However, when it pertains to Mother Nature’s droughts which impact surface and groundwater supplies for mortal consumption all sensible rational and problem solving skills fall to the wayside. The challenge of water scarcity must be met with methodical scientific thought and firm governing of how it will be shared to ensure clean, consumable drinking water for all.
Climate Change’s Effects on The Mojave Desert The problem known as climate change is causing a domino effect of devastating blows to the Mojave Desert’s ecosystem. Resulting in damage to plants and animals. Given this, if not changed now the effects will damage humans too. Sadly, it starts the pain by first taken out the most valuable source to any living creature: water.
The economic and environmental damage of draining the Colorado River dry is unacceptable. Millions of people rely on the River for drinking water, agriculture, quality of life, and future economic growth. Changing the way the West uses water from the Colorado River is crucial. Water conservation, water reuse, and other cost-effective and innovative solutions could avoid upcoming water shortages stemming from the over-taxed and stressed Colorado
California has not been receiving enough rain and many citizens are wasting water. ABC news have told Californians to save water by turning off the facet and taking short showers, believing this will fix the drought. While all residents are participating to reserve water, where are the statistics of California’s water report. Although ABC news have shown images of California’s underground water, how accurate are
The idea of preserving water is a debatable subject. However, humans should stop wasting water and should not take it for granted in order to survive with a healthy body, and reduce health risks. The most important reason why people should conserve clean water is to survive. In other words, water equals life. Without clean water, we will pass away in just a few days.
“As the population rises, the world 's water usage will rise. Many areas of the world already suffer from a lack of fresh water,” (Population Control 3). If the world runs out of freshwater, humanity will plunge into chaos. Humanity needs water to survive, and that is a fact. Relationships between countries will be broken apart over disputes for water.
1. Introduction Water is crucial to our survival! Water is one of the scarcest commodities in the world at the moment; some argue that it is scarcer than oil. Wars have been fought over oil; therefore a war over water is a very big possibility in the years to come on this planet. With the current growth of the world’s population and the increase in demand for water in the agricultural industry, the issue of water scarcity is very likely to get worse and worse (Gupta, 2016).
In the article, “Water Controversies Boil Over”, from Sacramento Bee “Opinion” section, published on APril 26, 2009 by Mat Wiser. He argues the conflict about conserving the water. Mat wiser exclaims that in the next year nations will fight over water, because it’s not being handled in the most efficient way it should be. Water isn’t being handled efficiently, and that kills land, food crops, and animals ecosystems. Mat Wiser says that, “There is probably enough fresh water available to meet humans needs the problem is poor management of water, which results in scarcity and conflicts,” (2009 Wiser).
In the article “Water Worries Grow in the Desert Southwest,” Rice (2013) talks about climate changes and causes that impact on water in the desert Southwest. The author mentioned Native Americans, they used canals and dams to bring water since 10 centuries. Today, there are 56 million Americans growing up in Southwest and they have region’s natural dryness. Also, Arizona state has less rain every year around 7.5 inches. In addition, Colorado River is most important to help 30 million people in Southwest.
Hurry hurry conserve the water before it’s runs out! Did you know California is in a drought? Animals and crops all over California are dying because california has been in a drought for four years now. The government is limiting the water uses to farmers.
2% of earth’s fresh water is frozen in ice caps; and, only 1% of earth’s fresh water is available to consume. 2. Unfortunately for our planet, supplies of water are running dry at an alarming rate. The world’s population continues to soar; but, that rise in numbers has not been matched by an increase in supplies of fresh water. Let’s talk about what is going on around the world; I will mention to you just a few major cities, and show you how they are dealing with water shortage.
Water is one of the most important and vital substance on earth. All life forms on earth require water to survive. If there will be no water there would be no life on earth. Aside from drinking water to survive, people have many other uses for water.
