Did you know that one of the most important issues is the water situation in California? Did you know that 2021 is the second driest year in California since 1924 according to ABC news? This is happening because of a lack of rainfall and rising temperatures from climate change. California is getting 15% of the water in the Colorado river according to https://www.c-win.org/the-colorado-river-compact! You can’t really stop climate change but you can at least save water! Here are a few strategies to do so… Turning off the faucet when you brush your teeth saves gallons a day. Another way you can save water is to use a broom to clean driveways, sidewalks and steps and not a hose. This can save thousands of gallons of water. There are many more ways you can save water but, I can’t list all of them. If people just waste water, there might be less water or worse, no water in California. No water in California can kill a lot of people and many people might move to another state. If everyone in the world would try to save water, there would probably be way more water than we have right now. Without water almost all the living animals in the world would die of thirst. You should be grateful for water!
