The most essential resource we have has been ignored for decades and we relegate ourselves to arguing over who gets what little is left.It is evident that humanities great concern is the world economic crisis. I just don’t think our leaders get it. The massive consumption of fossil fuels was as unsustainable economically as environmentally. In fact one can argue the high cost of diminishing water is as debilitating to the economy as the high cost of energy.How we produce food, the appliances we manufacture and consume and where we build cities to live and work will all have to be rethought. Change is inescapable. The cost will be high and to some unacceptable. I doubt prolonging the inevitable will make any easier the changes we must all undertake. Such change probably will prove to be more costly the longer societies delay substantive action.I guess the real question is do we want to choose our sacrifices to mitigate the crisis we face? Or do we let the crisis choose our sacrifices for us?
