World Must Use Renewables To Avoid Water And Energy Crisis says a new UN water development report, reports Magda Mis at Reuters. All sources of energy use water, but fossil fuels consume (vs. just use) much more water than renewable clean energy sources, as these charts show. http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/03/19/3415761/iea-water-energy/ Thus, because the world’s growing appetite for water and energy will greatly stress the limited water resources in nearly all regions, governments must turn to renewable energy to meet increasing demand for both and avoid a looming crisis.
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
