Today is 2010 Blog Action Day. This year's focus is water, more specifically, safe drinking water. Over 5000 people a day die due to water borne illnesses. Over 1 billion people do not have access to safe, reliable drinking water.
I learned these facts by watching HOME, a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. HOME is an outstanding video that clearly illuminates environmental degradation. One of the main themes is the water cycle.
HOME is available at YouTube and on DVD. Watch it at the highest resolution that you can. More information about the environment from the makers of HOME can be found at www.goodplanet.info/eng/
Please help. Please sign the petition UN now to improve drinking water quality.
