Food and water

filed under: @ 09:21:03

People use lots of water for drinking, cooking and washing, but even more for producing things such as food, paper, cotton clothes, etc. The water footprint of an individual, business or nation is defined as the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by the individual, business or nation.

I agree in principle and I actually don't see anything particularly new in it but I also think that the water used to cool nuclear reactors and in heavy industry processes should be taken into consideration. The general approach to the use of resources is at best erratic and often downright irresponsible. I'm still trying to figure out if it's done consciously having as the sole target a bigger income or is just the result of ineptitude by most of the “top specialists” in charge.
