Water Crisis - Blog Action Day 2010

Seventy-one percent our planet is covered by water. There's more water than anything else on the surface of the world.

Yet thousands die for lack of it.

Recently we have seen two disasters that have done major harm to the water; the Gulf oil spill and the sludge pouring out of Hungary. Yet these two "disasters" are, if you'll pardon the metaphor, like spitting in the ocean compared to the 2 million tons a day of waste polluting the worlds water supply. What is this waste?

It's shit.
Literally human waste.
